Once a child is diagnosed, and is over 3 yrs, federal law states a individualized education program that is unique to each child be implemented via the public school system. The goal is to teach the child according to his strengths, and using a multidisciplinary approach.
Reading can be taught using a multisensory approach like the slingerland method or project read. It is not an i.Q. Problem.
