Dyslexia

What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a specific language/ learning disability that  is neurological in origin.  It affects reading, writing and spelling and the ability to process written and/or verbal language.  Problems occur with reading fluently and accurately. It affects individuals with average or above average intelligence. It can cause difficulties with accurate word recognition, reading comprehension and vocabulary development. Individuals with dyslexia learn differently. Contrary to popular belief, they do not see words backwards. They might have difficulty learning a foreign language, rhyming, spelling, difficulty with letter naming, difficulty with handwriting, delayed expressive language, organizational issues, poor sequencing of sounds in words, spatial difficulties. Orton Gillingham is a multisensory approach used to teach reading, writing and spelling utilizing seeing, feeling and hearing to learn to read, spell, and write.

Language/Writing/Public Speaking

We offer language/writing help elementary school through college. Many students need help with organizing, outlining, and study skills. We offer remediation and coaching in all areas.  We use a multi sensory approach and structured program.  Students need to be able to write with organization and accuracy.  Older students will also benefit from being taught prefixes, suffixes and word roots to increase vocabulary. This helps them recognize  words used on a daily basis.   A focus is given to organizing thoughts and writing  complex sentences to form  clear paragraphs and essays.  This results in meaningful writing accepted for high school and college.
