LEARNING differences

Dyslexia often co-occurs with other language-based learning differences such as dysgraphia (writing) and dyscalculia (math).  In addition, dyslexic learners often experience underlying learning challenges with attention, executive functioning (planning and organizing), anxiety and cognitive processing.  Prevalence of co-occurrence varies wildly depending on the research study, but chances are high that a child with dyslexia will also have difficulty in one or more of these other areas.  As with dyslexia, early diagnosis and intervention enable children to become confident life-long learners.
