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.
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.
