However, studies show that an estimated 20% of the world's population is affected by dyslexia. Dyslexia is composed of hundreds of symptoms, but all result from signals being scrambled in the inner-ear and cerebellum. It effects people differently, but causes many of the same issues for people dealing with it.Smart But Feeling Dumb by Harold N. Levinson, MD defines dyslexia, offers insight into how people with dyslexia see things, and provides information on the treatment of the disorder. The book shows people who have succeeded, despite dealing with dyslexia. It provides hope for families and individuals.
Over 35 years of research, Levinson found that treating dyslexia with a series of anti-motion sickness medication, antihistamines, and vitamins was met with great results. 75 to 85% of his patients saw improvements over the course of treatment.
Smart But Feeling Dumb is a comprehensive resource for parents or teachers. It shows people that dyslexia does not define a person, and there are treatments out there that have helped others. It breaks down stereotypes and shows real people.
