Do you know a child who has trouble –

  • decoding (sounding out) written words

  • recognizing common words (sight words)

  • spelling

  • reading smoothly

  • rhyming

  • understanding what they read

  • writing

  • learning a foreign language


If so, they may be struggling with dyslexia.

Dyslexia is not a problem of intelligence – kids with dyslexia are just as smart as their peers. It is also not a problem of vision. Most importantly, dyslexia is not a problem of laziness. Kids with dyslexia are already trying hard. The core issue in dyslexia involves understanding how the sounds in words are represented by letters. Dyslexic children need specialized help to make progress.


Dyslexia is a brain-based issue that makes it hard to learn to read accurately and fluently. It is the most common learning disability – many successful people have it and researchers have been studying it for over a century.  Kids don’t outgrow dyslexia but with the right support key skills can improve.
