Scientifically Based Programs

If a child is dyslexic early on in school, that child will continue to
experience reading problems unless he is provided with a scientifically based,
proven intervention.
P. 34 Overcoming Dyslexia, Sally Shaywitz, MD

We sought out a tutor that provided such a program. There are a number of good programs out there - the program that Natalie's tutor uses is Bright Solutions. It is so encouraging to me to know that with the correct program, Natalie will be reading at grade level in hopefully about three years. With the public school, she probably would never be "bad enough" for help - and if she did recieve it - without using a proven program for Dyslexic children - she would still remain behind and struggling.

  1. I am dyslexic, but because of my age (62) they (school) thought I was slow. I knew I wasn't "slow", just that something was not right. I am sure that you knowt that dyslexic's are normally very creative people. Smile, you have on your hands a special daughter.
