After receiving a diagnosis of dyslexia, the amount of information to process and decisions to make can feel overwhelming. Just as every person has a different story about being diagnosed, so every family has a different path forward. Some work with private tutors. Others receive services at their local school or attend a school that specializes in learning differences. But the fundamental recommendations are simple and clear: instruction that is explicit, systematic, cumulative, multi-modal and responsive. Given adequate time and support, children with dyslexia not only learn, but thrive.
