Our checklist compiles the many symptoms of dyslexia in one convenient location, making it easier for you to identify potential signs and seek appropriate support. Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that affects reading, spelling, and writing, but it can manifest differently in each individual.

It’s essential to remember that dyslexia is not a measure of intelligence, and many individuals with dyslexia are creative, innovative, and talented in various areas. Recognizing and addressing dyslexia early on can make a significant difference in a child’s academic journey, paving the way for targeted interventions and support.

The Orton-Gillingham approach works wonders for students with dyslexia. Discover this powerful multisensory approach to teaching.

Rooted in research and developed by Dr. Samuel Orton and Anna Gillingham in the early 20th century, the Orton-Gillingham approach has since become a cornerstone in dyslexia education. Its success lies in its multisensory nature, which engages multiple senses simultaneously to reinforce learning.

At All About Learning Press, we wholeheartedly embrace the Orton-Gillingham approach and have incorporated its principles into our reading and spelling programs. This powerful method focuses on teaching phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension in a structured and systematic way.

In the Orton-Gillingham approach, learning becomes a multisensory experience. Students use sight, sound, touch, and movement to connect with language and reinforce their understanding of concepts. This holistic approach not only enhances memory retention but also builds confidence and self-esteem in struggling learners.
