YOUR CHILD IS NOT ALONE.
Ever heard of Charles Schwab? How about Jay Leno? Cher? Whoopie Goldberg or Pablo Picasso? Like Thomas Edison and one out or five United States students, they all had or have dyslexia or a similar language-based learning difference.
While dyslexia is a lifelong disorder, a different way of learning can teach children how to become competent, confident readers and writers. Moreover, children with dyslexia, who often have above-average intelligence, are filled with creativity and adept at thinking outside-the-box.
