Dyslexia is a language processing disability that affects reading, phonemic awareness, spelling, writing, comprehension, fluency and vocabulary
Dyslexia affects 1 in 5 children and adults. That’s 20% of the population. In every classroom there are 2-3 children who probably have dyslexia.
All children can learn to READ if provided the right remediation methods and accommodations. Knowing the warning signs is key to early intervention. Here are a few but not limited.
If there are more than 3 warning signs you should consider getting your child screened.
