Dyslexia & auditory processing disorders
Our speech therapists help kids succeed in school by helping them develop skills needed for great learning in the classroom.
There are serious short and long‑term effects of dyslexia. Young children with dyslexia gain less pleasure from reading, and so read less. Educational development is often delayed because of the need for reading and writing and spelling skills throughout schooling. Academic failure and a lack of qualifications impacts on the occupational choices and opportunities in adulthood.
