LINKZ is passionate about and dedicated to helping students and individuals of all ages feel confident with reading. According to the International Dyslexia Association,
“About 13–14% of the school population nationwide has a handicapping condition that qualifies them for special education. Current studies indicate that one half of all the students who qualify for special education are classified as having a learning disability (LD)... About 85% of those students have a primary learning disability in reading and language processing. Nevertheless, many more people — perhaps as many as 15–20% of the population as a whole — have some of the symptoms of dyslexia, including slow or inaccurate reading, poor spelling, poor writing, or mixing up similar words. Not all of these will qualify for special education, but they are likely to struggle with many aspects of academic learning and are likely to benefit from systematic, explicit, instruction in reading, writing, and language.”
Many of our tutors are trained in the industry-standard Orton Gillingham Phonological Awareness & Fluency Training program. For more information on dyslexia please click here. To find out more about Decoding Dyslexia click on the picture below.
