Dyslexia/Reading Disabilities

Dyslexia and reading disabilities are incredibly common yet often misdiagnosed and misunderstood. Children with Dyslexia typically can read to some degree but can read well; in other words, they lack fluency and automaticity when they read. We know that identifying their specific phonetic issues early and providing targeted, intensive, and explicit multisensory intervention can change the direction of a Dyslexic’s life. A wait for failure approach not only makes addressing the core issues more challenging, but has an emotional toll on children with Dyslexia.

Dyslexia Fact

Children with Dyslexia can learn to read when they are taught in a very specific manner that allows their brain to absorb and retain information.*

How can Neurofeedback help?

Children with Dyslexia can display both underactivity and overactivity in their brain wave functioning. Key areas in the brain related to learning and processing, need to communicate at rapid speeds with each other in order for efficient processing to occur. Improving connectivity helps the brain to work more efficiently. Neurofeedback training involves reinforcing the brain to self-regulate with better connectivity and timing, which results in improved learning, especially in areas of the brain related to the processing of phonemes.*

How can counseling, parent coaching and behavioral coaching help?

Parenting a child with a reading disability can be overwhelming and receiving therapeutic coaching can give parents the tools they need to better support their child. Children can also benefit from direct counseling or behavioral support and learns ways to self-regulate and self advocate, as well as it provides insurance that their self-esteem and emotional needs are being supported.*

How can an evaluation help?

Even though children are typically not evaluated until after the third grade, children can and should be evaluated at a much younger age. Difficulties with phonics and reading, as well as other issues, are often easily identified and can be corrected with appropriate programming. Private evaluations are not only diagnostic, but they should give you a clear understanding of your child as a learning, phonetic, and reading issues and how you can directly support them at home and in educational settings.*
