Finally, There Is An Explanation

The enlightenment. Many people don’t even consider dyslexia until they hear about it and begin doing research. You need to open the door to see if this may be an issue for your child. If your child is having trouble learning to read, they very well may have dyslexia. Our hope is that as you take this course you will not only have a much better understanding of dyslexia and how children learn to read, but you will create meaningful change in your child’s reading instruction.

Step 1 - Quote:

“Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.”
