Tutoring: A good dyslexia education program can help. If this is for a child, check with the school to see if they have special services available for dyslexia education. If for an adult, you may want to check with a local community college and see if they have any programs.

Dyslexia = language-: Based reading disorder caused by the brain's inability to process phonemes, the smallest units of sound in a language. People who have trouble decoding words (reading) often have trouble encoding words (writing), diagnosed as "disorder of written expression." a neuropsychological evaluation is needed to define the type & extent of your language impairment in order to determine useful therapies.
