With proper instruction, people with dyslexia can learn to read. The tutors in our network are specially trained in literacy programs developed specifically to help dyslexics improve their reading skills. Dyslexia is not connected to vision problems or intelligence. It is a neurological difference that creates special challenges in identifying distinct letters and words in print and connecting written letters with their associated sounds. Together, these make it difficult to “decode” words when learning to read. Reading programs that do not address these specific challenges are far less effective in helping dyslexics learn to read.
