Every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of any
challenges they may face. With the right support and guidance from their caregivers,
teachers and mentors, children can thrive academically and socially regardless of their
neurobiological abilities or disabilities.
“Dyslexia takes away an individual’s ability to read quickly and automatically, and to
retrieve spoken words easily, but it does not dampen their creativity and ingenuity,”
according to the Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity.
Dyslexia is a neurobiological condition impacting the brain’s ability to process language.
It does not reflect one’s intelligence and many individuals with dyslexia have unique
strengths in problem-solving, creativity and critical thinking, just to name a few.
However, without the proper support, students with dyslexia face challenges in
traditional learning environments.
At Dyslexia School of Houston (DSH), we’ve created a safe, dyslexia-friendly learning
environment for every student to thrive. Teachers at DSH encourage open
communication and positive attitudes towards learning to help students with dyslexia
build confidence both in, and out of the classroom.
Teachers play a pivotal role in shaping students’ mindsets by emphasizing their efforts,
diligence and the value of learning from their mistakes. For any student, especially
those with dyslexia, encountering academic challenges can be disheartening; the right
mindset can make all the difference.
“Teaching is more than imparting knowledge; it is inspiring change. Learning is more
than observing facts; it is acquiring understanding.” -William Arthur Ward
At the Dyslexia School of Houston, our teachers are not just educators; they are
mentors, advocates, and champions for every student. With the proper support, tools
and environment, students with dyslexia can thrive academically and confidently step
into a promising future.
