Treating Dyslexia

The best-practice protocol for remediating dyslexia requires 200 minutes per week of intensive, individualized, one-on-one educational therapy. This individualized instruction remediates

  1. the underlying cognitive processing deficits found during assessment
  2. while simultaneously remediating deficits in reading, spelling, and writing.
