What is dyslexia?
Dyslexia is a common learning disorder, affecting 20% of the general population and 80-90% of individuals with learning disabilities. Students with dyslexia have a hard time identifying the sounds associated with the letters they see. While they may recognize the name of the letter, they may not be able to identify the sound the letter makes in a word. Remediation works by teaching students how to identify the sounds associated with each letter, and how to blend them into words.
