WHAT IS DYSLEXIA? &
What Do 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.

It’s never too late to ensure your child receives a fantastic education. Dyslexia School of Houston offers literacy-first educational instruction to learners ranging from two to 10 years of age (and, we always support our students once they “age out” of our program!).

  • Have already been diagnosed with dyslexia or your suspect they may have a dyslexia diagnosis

  • Are constantly frustrated by spelling, reading, word processing, etc. and may avoid these types of activities or shut down altogether
