  • The Michigan Dyslexia Institute, Inc. (MDI) is a nonprofit organization serving children and adults with dyslexia. We envision a new world for children and adults with dyslexia: a world in which they feel good about themselves and look forward to the future with hope and confidence; a world in which they receive the kind of instruction they need, in a nurturing environment; a world in which they are understood and encouraged to develop their potential; and a world in which they can participate fully in the work place and in their communities. MDI is committed to bringing about this new world.

    Estimates of the number of persons with dyslexia in the United States range from under two percent to over ten percent of the population. While much research has been done, thousands of articles have been written and successful teaching strategies have been in use for over 60 years, ignorance continues to be the number one enemy of dyslexia.

    In response, MDI has presented hundreds of public awareness programs throughout the state on what dyslexia is and what can be done about it. For further information call Central Office at 517-485-4000 and free information is provided. A newsletter, The Potential, is published to provide communication and information to members and contributors. MDI is a partner with the Dyslexia Association of America in a national movement to provide services to persons with dyslexia throughout the United States.
