The diagnosis of dyslexia can be overwhelming to a family. Your child is frustrated from working hard to read, write, and spell and not achieving success. 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 is the Orton-Gillingham method? It is important for families to have accurate information to understand the diagnosis and intervention process. An informed parent is an empowered parent.
