Don't Wait!

The most important thing to remember is that if your child shows signs of dyslexia and is struggling with reading, you need to act now.  Don't wait while your child falls further and further behind.  You can start now by getting your child a qualified Orton-Gillingham tutor whether your child has been tested or not. 

 Orton Gillingham tutoring is appropriate for children who struggle with reading because of dyslexia or part of an overall language learning disability.  In other words, if your child has problems with reading, a qualified dyslexia reading therapist can only help! Even if your child only has mild difficulties , he will still make progress more quickly than waiting to see if another few months of school helps. I recommend that parents find the appropriate intervention for their child first if getting a dyslexia evaluation means having to wait.
