Homework struggles. Children who don’t want to go to school.  Teachers reporting that your child is behind in reading.

If you’ve dealt with these issues, it’s possible your child has trouble reading.

Studies show that as many in one in 5 people have difficulty reading. 

But could it be dyslexia?

Dyslexia is primarily associated with trouble reading, but it can also affect writing, spelling, speaking and math.

Just a few common warning signs of dyslexia:

  • Trouble memorizing address, phone number or the alphabet
  • A close relative with dyslexia
  • Inconsistent performance on school work
  • Letter and number reversals
  • Slow, choppy, and inaccurate reading
  • Skips or misreads simple words and word endings
  • Terrible spelling
  • Difficulty reading and spelling irregular sight words (does, said, off…)
  • Trouble memorizing math facts
  • Difficulty learning to tie shoes

The best way to help someone with reading difficulties is through effective, systematic, multi-sensory instruction in phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension. 

We help students with reading difficulties every day through a variety of services.
