Dyslexia School Of Houston
What is Dyslexia and What we do
"Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.” Adopted by the IDA Board of Directors, Nov. 12, 2002.
What we do is provide the first good instruction students need to stay on track with their academic goals.
In addition to establishing a solid foundation for student literacy, we also understand that it is critical to educate our families about how they can better understand and support their dyslexic student. That’s why we involve our parents in each step of the process, from phonological awareness to reading fluency. With parents involved, it’s easier to decode anytime, anywhere as students practice their new skills.

AT THE DYSLEXIA SCHOOL OF HOUSTON, WE RECOGNIZE DYSLEXIA AS BOTH A CHALLENGE AND AN OPPORTUNITY. WE’RE HERE TO HELP YOUR STUDENT TAP INTO THEIR TALENT AND BUILD CONFIDENCE IN THEIR READING ABILITY.
Dyslexia School of Houston is a tuition-based school that offers half-day sessions for students who wish to utilize our expertise as a supplement to traditional school or homeschooling.
We believe in prevention over intervention.
According to the International Dyslexia Association:
“About 13–14% of the school population nationwide has a handicapping condition that qualifies them for special education. Current studies indicate that one-half of all the students who qualify for special education are classified as having a learning disability (6–7%). About 85% of those students have a primary learning disability in reading and language processing.”
