What is Dyslexia?

The International Dyslexia Association describes dyslexia in the following way:

“Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological 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.”

  • I will be participating in Central Ohio’s Walk Like MADD at Homestead Park in September. I am walking in memory of my friend, Peggy. She was very supportive of me starting my own tutoring business, so I would like to think she would be pleased with how God has blessed The Learning Cottage!  If you would like to sponsor me in this 5K to benefit the Mothers Against Drunk Driving organization, please use the following link. Thank you for your consideration.
