If your child is bright and highly gifted and struggles to read, write, tie their shoes, he may be Dyslexic.
Come learn about the classic signs of Dyslexia, the cause of Dyslexia and what YOU can do to help your child "recover" from it. We will also touch on Dysgraphia and Dyscalcia, as well.

If your child show 3 of these Common Signs, this class is for you:

- mixing up the sounds and syllables in long words
- constant confusion of left versus right
- late establishing a dominant hand

number, or the alphabet

- difficulty telling time with a clock with hands
- trouble with math
- memorizing multiplication tables
