The charming and talented performer, David Arquette, may well have captured a new fan base by appearing on Dancing with the Stars. But he’s won me over with his honest discussion about having dyslexia.

Dyslexia is a learning disability that makes it more difficult for people to recognize and understand the written language, which makes reading, writing and spelling especially difficult. It is not an intellectual disability.

Kudos to David Arquette for speaking out honestly about his dyslexia in front of an audience of millions, creating greater awareness and understanding of this disorder.

I love it when people use their celebrity for good.
