Meet Landon

Every month we bring you the story of a young person who has faced the challenge of dyslexia and how they've come out on top. Be inspired by Landon, a high school student that changed his perspective of dyslexia when he understood how his mind processed information, and he then connected to empowering strategies and his own creativity.
