Reading Disabilities

boy in libraryOf all the skills children learn, reading is arguably the most important. It is a means of gaining knowledge about many different subjects and of understanding the world. Today, especially in the developed world, it is considered a fundamental skill required for success. Unfortunately, for many children with reading disabilities, learning to read is one of the most arduous and frustrating activities they will ever face. All too often, the barriers they face outweigh their desire to read and, without proper guidance, they never overcome them.

Learn about the importance of reading, processes our brain must undergo in order to read, signs to watch for and reading and literacy strategies to help combat reading disabilities.
