| Question #11 :|
- My grandson has been diagnosed as dyslexic. How can we
verify this diagnosis? What type of educational programs are
available for him?
|Answer #11: |

education services available to your grandson will be determined by
the severity of his dyslexia. I'm sure you'll be pleased to know
that there are wonderful programs for addressing this particular
Your grandson's school should prepare an IEP (Individualized
Educational Plan) which details the specific services he will require
until he has 'cracked the code' and can read fluently. There are many
schools which offer specialized instruction to dyslexic children,
but, depending on the nature of the disability, many dyslexic
children do well in public school and are usually mainstreamed. As
in every category, however, there are some wonderful schools and
others which can augment a dyslexic child's sense of frustration.
For more information and for guidance concerning specialists who

Remember, dyslexia does not affect intelligence. Your grandson can
achieve his academic potential as soon as he learns to compensate
for his learning difference.
