At Dyslexia School of Houston, we believe in Prevention vs. Intervention. How does this work? πŸ‘‡

While you can never truly prevent dyslexia, the earlier you diagnose and intervene, the more you can prevent the social and emotional toll it can take on both children and their families. With the proper instruction, your child can succeed no matter the circumstance.


Wednesday Wisdom: Around 40% of people diagnosed with dyslexia also have ADHD and those with dyslexia use about five times more energy to complete mental tasks.

We meet students where they're at in their academic journey. Learn more about our unique educational approach by visiting dyslexiahouston.org. πŸ’‘


Fun With Phonics!

We cater to our students' unique learning style with a hands-on approach! We love practicing our literacy skills through innovative ways, such as reading out loud with our teachers and fun with phonics. 🧠


Wondering what a typical day for a student at Dyslexia School of Houston looks like? Each tutoring session is split into three equal decks: a spelling deck, a reading deck and a writing deck. The plus side... no homework! All learning and practices are done at school and if students choose to read for fun or at home, that's 100% up to them. πŸ’™


Overcoming Dyslexia: Keira Knightley

The Pirates of the Caribbean star, Keira Knightley, was diagnosed with dyslexia at the young age of six. She used her love of acting and the arts to help motivate her to read, such as reading scripts. Knightley made a deal with her parents that if she practiced reading every day, they would hire her an agent. Many roles and years later, she went on to become one of Hollywood's highest-earning actresses.
