Niagara Falls will be awash in red tonight for Mark it Read for Dyslexia

Niagara Falls will be lit up all in red tonight to mark the first annual Mark it Read for Dyslexia campaign.

Buildings and monuments across the country will use red lights to show support for the 10 to 15 percent of Canadians living with dyslexia.

Dyslexia Canada asks us to imagine trying to manage every day life with a hereditary disability that makes it difficult to read, write or spell like everyone else.

The organization adds 1 in 5 kids struggle with dyslexia and the teacher's red pen is a constant reminder of the lack of awareness and support needed for them to actually learn to read, write and spell with their peers and be successful in school and in life.
