10 Ways Parents Can Spot Dyslexia

Monthly Spotlight: Dyslexia

March 2016

No one is born with the ability to read. We have to learn how. For those that find it extremely difficult to learn how to read and often show struggles in various academic areas, they may have one of the most common learning challenges, Dyslexia. Dyslexia affects 1 out of 5 individuals worldwide. Early intervention is key to ensure that an individual with dyslexia succeeds in school developmentally, socially, and academically.  It is therefore important for parents to know how to identify common symptoms of Dyslexia as early as possible. We have created this month's spotlight video for that very reason. It is a practical list of characteristics a parent may recognize and inquire about. Of course not all dyslexics exhibit every single characteristic, but if you watch this video and feel that the descriptions match closely to behaviors of someone you know, it might be worth further investigation.
