October is Dyslexia Awareness Month

89 0

​Dyslexia is a neurobiological learning disability that affects about 23 % of Canadians. People may have difficulty with reading despite having normal intelligence and eye sight. Children benefit from a supportive teacher using a direct, multisensory, and systematic approach to reading instruction, such as with the Orton-Gillingham approach. This October, Canadian buildings will light up with red lights to acknowledge those affected by this condition. In fact, although these students may struggle with reading tasks, they can function well academically when provided with the proper assistive supports and instruction that meets their specific needs. https://www.dyslexiacanada.org/mark-it-read-2020
