Help for Struggling Readers: Decoding Dyslexia: The Grassroots Movement Making a Difference!

Dr. Pat McGuire‘s insight:

Depending on the source you read, dyslexia affects between 1 in 10 and 1 in 15 people.  It is the most common reason for reading problems.  It is also a neurologic, language-based disorder that affects many aspects of a person’s life, not just reading and spelling.  Unfortunately, despite a growing library of evidence about the specific areas of the brain that are affected, most schools still use less than optimal methods of teaching these students. This is why Decoding Dyslexia was founded by families who are tired of being told that "Dyslexia is just a junk word meaning reading problems" or "Dyslexia doesn’t exist", or "There is no way to diagnosis it or provide help for it."  

 

Help these individuals to reach their highest potential.  Help Decoding Dyslexia get the legislation passed in EVERY state so that schools have to acknowledge it, learn how to identify it, and provide proven interventions to help our children become the best that they can.

  1. Dr. McGuire,

    Thank you very much for sharing our most recent post about the growing Decoding Dyslexia movement. It really is all about raising awareness as well as providing support and current information to parents and others interested in changing the status quo regarding dyslexia services here in the U.S.

    We appreciate your efforts to help spread the word through your informative blog here.

    Thank you,

    Joan M. Brennan
