What is Dyslexia?

Dyslexia is a specific learning difference that makes it difficult for people to read, write and/or spell. It has nothing to do with a person’s intelligence. Often, weaknesses may be seen in areas such as language development, memory and sequencing. Having dyslexia does not mean that your child’s ability to learn is below average.  Dyslexia is a life-long condition that usually runs in families.  You are unable to determine that someone has dyslexia just by looking at them and some start out fine in school, but gradually schoolwork can become a struggle for them especially the transition from preschool to primary, then primary to secondary, or secondary to tertiary.

Early identification and intervention of learning differences are vital.  Early support for learning differences is essential for a child's well-being and an assessment provides greater insight into learning needs and informs us about how we can support their educational and developmental outcomes.  At DAS we work with students with dyslexia and other Specific Learning Differences (SpLD), which we often refer to as "Dyslexia +++"  Irrespective of the SpLD diagnosis all students can benefit from the specialist teaching at DAS.  Find out more about our SPLD Assessment Services
