DYSLEXIA

Signs your child may have

challenges with Dyslexia

(including, but not limited to):

  • Difficulty reading and comprehending grade-level texts

  • Labored and slower reading

  • Difficulty sounding out new words

  • Unable to produce rhyming words

What is it?

Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in nature.  It results from a deficit in the phonological component of language.  It impacts 10-20% of the population.

OUR APPROACH

At Leaps and Bounds, our speech-language pathologists assess a child’s phonological awareness, reading, and writing abilities to determine if a phonological disorder is impacting literacy skills. 

 

Treatment includes multi-sensory instruction in phonological awareness, sound/letter correspondence, encoding/decoding, and sight word instruction.  Our speech-language pathologists identify and treat any other aspects of speech and language as appropriate.
