What is Dyslexia?

According to the International Dyslexia Association, dyslexia is a language based learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with reading, writing, and spelling.


Simply said, if you or your child have dyslexia, your brain is wired differently which affects your overall language skills.


Nearly 15-20% of people (yes, that's 1 in 5) show signs and symptoms of dyslexia.


Some of the the most common warning signs or symptoms of dyslexia are: 


  • Mixing up sounds and syllables 

  • Trouble learning letters and sounds

  • Slow, choppy inaccurate reading

  • Terrible spelling 

  • Poor memory for words

  • Letter, number reversals that continued past the first grade

  • Dreading going to school

  • Poor written expression
