With a strong love for mathematics and science in school, Albert Einstein disliked grammar and always had problems with spelling. The headmaster of Einstein's school actually suggested he should attend a trade school and his teachers reportedly declared him as borderline intellectually impaired due to his literacy challenges. It is safe to say, he did not listen to his teachers and went on to become one of the world's most influential physicists and theorists of all time. ๐Ÿง

Although scientists know more about dyslexia now than ever before, there are still a lot of misconceptions about the unique learning difference. One myth being, that dyslexia is a vision problem.

People with dyslexia are no more likely to have eye and vision problems than others. Itโ€™s true that many do have problems with visual perception or visual processing, meaning the brain has trouble processing what the eyes are seeing. These challenges can make reading difficult, but they are not a part of dyslexia.

The many myths revolving around dyslexia can create obstacles for parents searching for help for their child's unique learning challenge. Many people believe dyslexia "goes away" once children learn to read. Although intervention makes a big difference in helping kids with dyslexia learn to read, being able to read doesnโ€™t mean theyโ€™re โ€œcured.โ€ Dyslexia is a lifelong learning obstacle that affects more than just basic reading skills.

Dyslexia School of Houston places empathy at the forefront of our instruction, making sure no student is left behind on their journey to literacy.
