“Good advice for those of us in the teaching fields. Find that strength...how wonderful to get that one word, that one sentence [from a teacher], 'Hey, this is kinda nice.' That’ll keep you going.”

Malcolm Alexander, acclaimed dyslexic sculptor  

We are glad that you found DyslexiaHelp! It is our goal to provide you with information about the signs and symptoms of dyslexia, as well as appropriate testing, diagnosis, and intervention for children, teens, and adults with dyslexia. 

As you know, developmental dyslexia is a multifaceted, interesting phenomenon. Given its complexity, if you are a new practitioner it can be overwhelming to understand, diagnose, and treat. If you are new to the teaching field, it can be a challenge to meet the needs of students with dyslexia when you are also working to teach 25 other students in the room, some with their own learning challenges. And, regardless of where you are in your professional life, it can be a challenge to stay abreast of the research, new diagnostic tests, new techniques for intervention, and assistive technology.

In this section we provide information that is specific for professionals who work with children and adults with dyslexia. Some of the sections are geared toward the novice; whereas others are for the more seasoned professional. We'd also like to point you to the tabs for individuals with dyslexia and parents as there may be information that you'd like to share with your students, clients, and families.

We hope that you will find the information beneficial and look forward to your feedback about the site, including other needs you may have. Please like us on Facebook or email us at dyslexiahelp@umich.edu to sign up for our monthly enewsletter.

We hope that you return to the site on a regular basis because we continually update and expand our content. Success starts here!
