Dyslexia Doesn’t Just Affect Reading


Your child has been diagnosed with dyslexia and you have since learned about what it is: a language-based learning disorder that impacts word reading accuracy, spelling, and fluency. But that is not all that affects children with dyslexia. Trouble comprehending conversations, classroom lectures, and understanding social cues are other ways children with dyslexia can be impacted.

The National Center for Learning Disabilities ( is an informative, reputable website that provides parents and specialists with a wide array of information on learning disabilities. Read this article posted about ways you can help your child with dyslexia navigate through some difficult social scenarios.
