Dyslexia: Identification and Remediation

Does your child struggle with reading? 

Dyslexia not only impacts reading; it may also impact spelling and speaking.  Dyslexia can make the experience of going to school extremely challenging for students.  It is important to identify and remediate Dyslexia early.  Children who receive direct, systematic and explicit phonics instruction show larger growth in literacy skills than those receiving "whole language" or "whole word" approaches (National Reading Panel, 2000).

Dysgraphia:  Identification and Remediation

Does Your child struggle with spelling and writing?


If so your child may have dysgraphia.  Dysgraphia makes it difficult for children to correctly form letters and use appropriate spacing in writing text accurately and with automaticity.  Children with dysgraphia may also find the task of physically writing to be a challenge.
