- Enabling Minds to Grow -
We are a teaching/therapy organization for students who are bright but have an unexpected difficulty with reading and/or math.  Up to 20% of the U.S. population suffers from some degree of dyslexia.  Reading capability is a requirement for success. Dyslexia is devastating, but it doesn't have to be.  With proper multisensory remediation, almost all dyslexics can be taught to read.  If therapy begins early enough, 80% will read well.
Characteristics Which May Accompany Dyslexia:
* Difficulty isolating and identifying sounds in words, syllables, and rhymes.
* Difficulty with word identification. Trouble  comprehending what is read.
* Difficulty with spelling, especially remembering the order of letters.
* Problems with handwriting. Reversals of letters.    Unclear about right or left handedness.
* Problems in math related to the order of numbers, the sequence of steps in a problem, or the language of mathematics and directionality.
* Difficulty putting thoughts into words; written or spoken.
* Delays in learing to speak and in using age- appropriate language.
* Confusion of directions in space or time (e.g. right/left, up/down, yesterday/tomorrow).
