What is dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a language-based learning disability.  It causes people to struggle with specific language skills such as reading, spelling, writing, and pronouncing words. 

Research has shown that using the Orton-Gillingham (OG) approach for individuals with dyslexia can "rewire" their brains to help them learn to read and spell.
