Learning to ReadYou may not be able to read this paragraph. You may see a number (4) - or a repeated letter (a) - or some word patterns (ooz or eht).

Could you navigate your day when you could not read the signs around you, documents, or a notice from your child’s school informing parents of a field trip to the zoo (above)?
