Dyslexia is a language based learning disability whose symptoms cause an array of problems for students, but help for dyslexia is available at any age. Getting a tutor for dyslexia involves more than just working on the development of reading and writing skills. The primary difficulty for individuals with dyslexia is word recognition. This means their brain sees words differently than a brain without dyslexia. Reading comprehension and fluency, spelling, and writing can all be problematic for the dyslexic individual. At our clinic in Chicago, we have a staff of tutors and learning specialists who can help.
Most individuals with dyslexia have some form of difficulty processing visual and or/auditory information, and our dyslexia tutors can help. At Cognitive Solutions Learning Center in Chicago, we focus on the development of underlying areas of brain processing to help individuals with Dyslexia. In addition to academic tutoring, we use a series of activities and exercises designed to develop auditory and visual processing, executive functions, attention, higher order thinking, and learning skills.
Truly understanding and remediating Dyslexia and its impacts is best achieved by first clarifying the difficulties through comprehensive learning disability testing. Then, a highly individualized and effective tutoring program can be designed. For more information on Dyslexia testing at Cognitive Solutions Learning Center, please visit our Dyslexia Testing page.
