Dyslexia

 

Dyslexia is a neurological disorder that adversely affects the way children learn to read, write, and speak as well as how they process things mathematically. Some of the world’s most famous artists, innovators and leaders were and are dyslexic or have or had the gift of dyslexia, including Leonardo da Vinci, Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Agatha Christie, William Hewlitt, Winston Churchill, Whoopi Goldberg, Walt Disney, Tom Cruise, Cher, Jay Leno, and Charles Schwab.

Dyslexia affects one out of every five people, and affects boys and girls in equal numbers. Children not instructed in appropriate compensation strategies for dyslexia often suffer devastating personal consequences. It is the number one reason teenagers drop out of school, and is a primary factor in juvenile delinquency. Research reveals that children with uncompensated dyslexia can become underachieving adults unable to contribute to society at their fullest capacity.

Dyslexia is, however, looked upon by our eyes as a gift of God. Children with dyslexia do need help, and the earlier they receive it, the sooner and greater their chance of achieving and assuming their inert optimal God given stations in life.

As part of the educational community, we are committed to helping students achieve their potential for learning through strengthening reading, spelling, writing, language comprehension and math.
