WHAT IS DYSLEXIA?

DYSLEXIA IS A SPECIFIC LEARNING DIFFERENCE THAT IS NEUROBIOLOGICAL IN ORIGIN.

While a child with dyslexia may have normal or above-normal intelligence, and often a great desire to learn, their brain processes letters, words and characters differently. This makes it difficult to recognize certain letters and/or words, harder to comprehend and process written passages, and often challenging to read aloud or “sound out” a word or specific spelling.

It’s important to remember that while dyslexia is neurobiological in origin, it has an educational solution. At Riverside School, we provide a style of teaching that meets the individual needs of students with language-based learning differences, encouraging them to achieve their highest academic potential.
