Although dyslexia affects your child in many ways, you are likely to find that learning to read is the primary and most significant barrier. Your child may be offered or exposed to a number of different strategies or methods for teaching reading. Most reading programs involve some sort of direct instruction or tutoring, and are generally geared to building skills and understanding in specific areas of academic weakness. Instruction may be one-on-one or in small groups, or it may rely heavily on videotapes or computers. Your child may receive instruction from a highly qualified teacher with a master's degree and certificates demonstrating advanced training in a variety of reputable methods; or your child may end up being tutored by a student trainee or classroom aide. Instructional reading programs do not cure or remedy dyslexia; rather, they are geared to building essential reading skills without purporting to address the underlying neurological or cognitive issues that may give rise to dyslexia.
