Dyslexia simply means 'difficulty with words'- dys meaning 'difficulty'
- lexia meaning 'words'
This name has been in use for over 100 years.
There are various forms of dyslexia
Dyslexia can be associated with behavioural conditions such as Attention Deficit Disorder or Dyspraxia and research clearly indicates that reading difficulties and behavioural problems are often linked.
Research has shown that reading difficulties are best addressed using a structured cumulative multi sensory approach. IDL is a flexible multi-sensory system in which the lessons are built around the needs of the individual student, the underlying philosophy is that the program must fit the student, not that the student must fit the program.
"Dyslexia is a name, not an explanation. Dyslexia means, quite literally, being unable to read. Children who experience difficulty in learning to read are frequently called dyslexic, but their difficulty does not arise because they are dyslexic, or because they have dyslexia; they are dyslexic because they cannot read.
