"Dyslexia is not a disease to have and be cured of, but a way of thinking and learning. Often it's a gifted mind waiting to be found and taught."

What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin caused by different wiring of the brain. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.

There is no cure for dyslexia and individuals with this condition must learn coping strategies. With the right instruction most  individuals with dyslexia can learn to read and go on to accomplish great things. 

There is no relationship to general intelligence and individuals with dyslexia are neither more nor less intelligent than the general population.

What is the Orton-Gillingham approach?

The multi-sensory approach engages learners through visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile techniques. The learning sequence is systematic and takes the student step-by-step from basic concepts that progress to more complex language functions.

Orton-Gilingham Practitioners and Educators

What is the Phono-Graphix Method?

The Phono-Graphix reading method has been proven 98% effective at addressing reading problems at any age or ability level. Phono-Graphix is research based, developmentally appropriate, simple and concrete, It uses a phonetic-linguistic approach to teaching reading.
