Every child is unique, and every child deserves our support to help them succeed. Reading struggles have neurological origins and have typically nothing to do with IQ. Today's educational approaches leave an estimated 10% of students behind in reading. Around 90% of them are never tested, and never helped. Dynaread is in a passionate quest since 2006 to help fight adolescent low literacy. We want your child to succeed! and reach their beautiful God-given potential.
Struggling readers are at risk: Serious risk. Compassion and honesty requires us to share two potential vulnerabilities your child may face.
Vulnerability #1: The risk of remaining functionally illiterate. This risk opens the door to a whole basket of other risks.
Our language-filled world is hostile to them. They cannot connect with it and cannot properly interact with it.
Yet, dyslexic children have often developed excellent coping skills, which make them highly suitable for spatial fields, such as entrepreneuring, architecture, or the arts.
But only if they can sufficiently connect with life and society. Research shows that not all can. This is why it is so important to win the struggling child's heart.
To demonstrate the grounds for our passion to see children succeed in reading, please check these research-based findings.
Vulnerability #2: The risk of consecutive failure. This is logical, because—to date—nothing has really worked for them.
This is why Dynaread's approach to reading remediation is focused first and foremost on recovering the child's motivation and believe in self. And this is why we have developed our PMP Dyslexia Assessment Test to be non-threatening and enjoyable.
We start with the well-known Matching Game (match the pictures), while measuring Working Memory, and then progress to a short series of individual word reading exercises.
And we close with a comprehension test. The moment we have collected enough information, we discontinue the test. That point differs for every child. No child is ever left struggling or embarrassed.
We conclude the test with a questionnaire for you to complete. Just 10 questions that will provide us with an initial background understanding, before we personally review the assessment results.
Language-based learning disabilities are very common. About 15-20% of the English-speaking student population have a language-based learning disability.
Of all students with any kind of specific learning disability, 70-80% have deficits in reading. See also Comorbidity of dyslexia, dyspraxia, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and Tourette's syndrome in children: a prospective epidemiological study.
The question is: Who has the disability? Your child? Or could it be that the Learn to Read methods do not quite match the way your child learns? Or both?
Dynaread Special Education Corporation is privately owned, and our team's passion is "Service." We want to make reading help available for everyone.
We see reading assistance not as a luxury, but as a necessity, and want to give every child the ability to overcome their reading struggles.
We avoid costly overheads and pursue our primary objective: Reading remediation at the lowest price in the market. We want to see children succeed. Period.
Do your child a favor: Please take 15 minutes and do our dyslexia assessment test. You will soon be talking with one of us, and discover our passion to help your child.
Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin.
It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and / or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.
