What dyslexia is and what dyslexia is not

Developmental dyslexia is a multifaceted, interesting phenomenon. Given its complexity, it can be overwhelming to deal with and understand, as well as to know where to get the proper help and what that assistance should look like. The goal of this section is to help you understand what dyslexia is and what it is not, how it is diagnosed, and how treatment plans are developed. Let's say that while there are many commonalities, each person with dyslexia has his or her own individual profile that needs to be discovered and understood, and then an appropriate plan of action can be developed.

In addition, we have provided a comprehensive glossary to help you understand all of the terms, of which there are many, related to dyslexia, language development, learning disability, and other related areas.

By taking a step-by-step approach (similar to what we do in diagnostic assessments and therapy), you can identify those behaviors that are indicative of dyslexia, develop an action plan, and begin to get help.

Success starts here!
