Dyslexia

Dyslexia is the most common learning disability in children. It manifests itself primarily as a difficulty with written language, particularly with reading and spelling. Evidence suggests that dyslexia results from differences in how the brain processes written or spoken language.

Children with dyslexia have difficulty learning to read despite traditional instruction, at least average intelligence, and an adequate opportunity to learn. Children can become frustrated by their difficulty learning to read, and may show signs of low self-esteem or depression. Frequently children with dyslexia become unmotivated and develop a dislike for school.

Be Amazing Learning is a certified provider of Fast ForWord programs, which can be an effective dyslexia intervention because they attack the auditory processing disorders that cause reading difficulties.

A Stanford University study that examined brain imaging scans of children with dyslexia who used Fast ForWord (click to download PDF) showed normalization of activity in critical areas of the brain used for reading. Furthermore, this group of students showed significant improvements in reading and oral language skills on a number of assessments.
