Penny talks Senate Bill 346 and what it means for your third grader!
Dyslexia can be subtle; such as a person may read very well, but not remember what they read. Or, it can be profound when a person is unable to recognize a letter or attach a sound to that letter to make a word to link into a sentence and understand meaning. It shows itself differently from person to person.
Fifteen to 20 percent of the US population has dyslexia, a disability that can significantly hinder an individual’s academic performance, which can, in turn, have a negative emotional impact. While there isn’t a cure, children and adults with the disability can be helped with the appropriate diagnosis and treatment program.
