The EDUFAX Educational FAQ

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:
  • A diagnosis of a learning difference can be verified by an educational evaluator or testing psychologist. The type of special 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 learning disability.
    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 might help you, you can contact your local Learning Disabilities Association.
    Remember, dyslexia does not affect intelligence. Your grandson can achieve his academic potential as soon as he learns to compensate for his learning difference.
    You can find a listing of special educational books and CD-ROMS available on the Internet and compare their prices, on the EDUFAX site.
    EDUFAX provides services for the
