One in five of the general population is dyslexic.
Dyslexia can range from mild to moderate/classic to severe to profound.
There is no quick fix. A few week “cure” will not help.
Repeating a grade does not help a child with dyslexia learn to read and spell if they aren’t taught the right way.
Many classroom teachers do not understand dyslexia and most don’t have the resources or time to meet the needs of dyslexic students in addition to the many other classroom needs.
Dyslexia lasts a lifetime, but it can be remediated, meaning the brain can be retrained to read correctly, no matter the age.
Using an Orton-Gillingham based program is the most effective way to teach dyslexics to read.
The longer a child waits to get remediation, the longer it takes to catch up. Don’t wait!
Acknowledge the symptoms. Make arrangements for remediation. There IS real help available!
