The diagnosis of dyslexia can be overwhelming for a family. Your child is frustrated from working so hard to read, write, and spell without reaching success. Worse yet, classmates and siblings may be exceling, which only adds to the frustration. The dyslexia diagnosis can be a relief, but what does it mean? What happens next? What does the future hold? It is important for families to have accurate information to understand the diagnosis and intervention. An informed parent is an empowered parent.
