What is dyslexia?

The Rose Report (2009) states, ‘Dyslexia is a learning difficulty that primarily affects the skills involved in accurate and fluent word reading and spelling.’ 

 

The severity of the phonological deficit, additional learning difficulties and environmental experiences may vary between individuals. Dyslexia is a developmental difficulty in language learning and cognition; by using professional expertise we can help the child to overcome its effects.

 

‘If a child cannot learn from the way you teach, you will have to teach the way the child learns.’  Chasty (1985) Dyslexia Institute
