Dyslexia is one of the most misunderstood learning disabilities. Many people think that if you can read, you can’t be dyslexic. We often hear, “My child doesn’t mix their b’s and d’s so they can’t have Dyslexia” This could not be further from the truth. School based evaluations often fail to identify this condition since they often are not even administering the correct tests to be able to identify it. We conduct comprehensive evaluations in order to accurately determine if you or your child has Dyslexia.
If your child has been properly diagnosed with Dyslexia, we can help you to know what to do next. Treatment for Dyslexia does not necessarily mean more tutoring in reading. By meeting with one of our experts in the area of Dyslexia, we will work with you and your child to first teach you what pieces need to be in place and secondly how to get them in place. Therapy involves working with you as the parent, with your child’s school/teachers, tutoring in assistive technology and multi sensory approaches to learning. We work with you and your child collaboratively to develop intervention plans so that he/she will excel in school, improve their motivation toward learning, increase their self-esteem and reach their highest potential.
