There is the possibility of ten percent (10%) of the Ghanaian population being dyslexic; 4% maybe severely so. Many of the people with dyslexia across Ghana / Africa, adults or children, maybe unable to fulfil their potential as a large percentage of the population still do not understand what dyslexia is, the difficulties which the condition presents and do not know how best to support them.
Crossroads@U2Kan,(a Non Governmental Organisation) was set up in 2002 by a person with dyslexia for people with dyslexia, with the motive that every person deserves education and a right for their needs to be identified and fully met.
