About Dyslexia

More Than Just a Reading Disorder

Dyslexia is actually a problem with the processing of language; kids have difficulty processing the sequence of sounds that comprise spoken words. Consequently, you get words like “psghetti” and “amninal.” Interesting, these kiddos genuinely don’t ‘hear’ themselves saying the words incorrectly so it’s difficult for them to self-correct.

The Foundation of Treatment

All of the effective strategies are based on a ‘multi-sensory’ approach that incorporates, in the learning process, visual, auditory, and kinesthetic. A child may be shown the word, asked to say the word, hear it spoken by the teacher, write the word on paper, and write the word or letter (using a finger) on a rough surface.
ABOUT OUR

Packages

We offer two sessions per week, either group or individual.

To promote your child's reading skills, our Reading Specialist will provide daily activities for your child, to practice between sessions, to enhance reading skills no matter if your child is seen twice per week, or monthly.

Straightforward and kind leaning assessment of my son.
Very relaxed and quiet atmosphere. At the end we had a diagnosis that made sense and a plan to move forward. When you spend years worrying and guessing a plan and support is all you really want.
