3 Websites to Find Help for your Child with Dyslexia





Has your child recently been diagnosed with Dyslexia or a similar oral language based disability? Are you thinking, "Where do I go from here?" or "What do I do now?" 

Below I have listed some approaches and websites that have been effective in making students with Dyslexia more successful in school and beyond!

1. The Orton-Gillingham Approach (OG): The Orton-Gillingham Approach is a diagnostic, prescriptive, sequential, and multi-sensory approach to teaching reading, morphology, and more! There are many certified Orton-Gillingham Instructors/Therapists nationwide! To find an Orton-Gillingham Instructor that is qualified and holds a certification awarded by the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators visit the academy's website: http://www.ortonacademy.org/instructor.php 

2. If you would like your child to be immersed in instruction specifically designed for children diagnosed with Dyslexia and/or a similar oral language based disability, you can find a nationwide list of independent schools for children with oral language disabilities here: http://dyslexiahelp.umich.edu/answers/independent-schools
