What are the needs of a dyslexic learner?
Each dyslexic is an individual and needs to be taught in the way he learns.
Dyslexia is a neurological-based learning disorder however, the treatment is educational.
Dyslexics need to be taught using a highly structured and multisensory approach using all of his three senses : visual, auditory and kinesthetic; engaging more areas of the brain simultaneously and thus enhancing the learning process.
What is taught at the MSL Centre?
The centre uses the Orton-Gillingham Approach to treat dyslexia.
All our clients will be taught explicitly :
Our philosophy, in Gillingham’s words, is to teach to the intellect, as fast as possible but as slowly as necessary for useful and stable learning.
With appropriate education, dyslexia need only be a temporary impediment.
While early intervention is highly desirable, it is never too late to learn. Successful results have followed intervention at any age, even in adults.
