Learning Support Services: Dyslexia Programming

Does your child struggle with reading and or spelling? Are grades starting to fall? Have you considered looking into dyslexia as the reason?

“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.”

Adopted by the IDA Board of Directors, Nov. 12, 2002.

For more information go to:

Bright Solutions for Dyslexia http://www.brightsolutions.us/

International Dyslexia Association https://dyslexiaida.org/

A dyslexia screening can be conducted to determine, with a high degree of accuracy, whether or not your child fits the classic profile of dyslexia, and if so, it will reveal which type of research-based intervention (tutoring) is needed and a list of classroom accommodations will also be provided. Dyslexia screening consists of parent interview, review of grades, prior testing and current work samples, 10 screening tools, and a written report. Cost $500

Recommended tutoring is a minimum of two hours per week using the Barton Reading and Spelling System (an Orton-Gillingham based program). Cost $35/hour
