Reading problems?   

You are not alone!     

Dyslexia is the most common cause of learning difficulties, affecting as many as one in five.

Dyslexia literally means “difficulty with words” and is characterized by struggles learning to read, write and spell, despite average to above-average intelligence. Dyslexia runs in families, and chances are 40-45% that if you have dyslexia your child will, too.

 Don’t wait.

It is important to screen children as early as possible for language-based learning differences like dyslexia.  If your child is struggling, begin tutoring with a dyslexia specialist and schedule a psyco-educational evaluation as soon as possible.

To reach his/her highest potential, a dyslexic child needs to be taught in a specific way. According to the National Institute of Child Health and Development, a multi-sensory, systematic, structured, sequential, cumulative and personalized teaching approach is necessary for dyslexic children to gain access to the language skills needed to become a proficient reader.
