Ask The Experts | Making Reading Fundamental for Dyslexics

Airdate: November 2022

One in five students has dyslexia, the most common language-based learning disability. In general, dyslexia impacts one’s ability to read or interpret words, letters, and other symbols. Yet, it’s no indicator of general intelligence. Still, kids who can’t read like their peers often suffer ridicule, battered self-esteem and withdrawal because they stop believing themselves smart and capable. But with early intervention and the right support, struggling readers can make significant strides and discover reading to be less formidable and more fundamental to their lives. On this episode of A World of Difference: Embracing Neurodiversity, our panel of experts shares practical strategies to help parents better support their struggling readers at home.
