Learning to read is not a “natural” process. While our brains are naturally wired to speak, they are not naturally wired to read and write.
And while research shows that all students benefit from instruction based in the science of reading, it is essential for the 1-in-5 students with dyslexia. That’s because children with dyslexia struggle with the letter-sound relationship at the core of reading and writing. As a result, they need a very explicit and systematic approach to instruction in order to learn how to break the code of written language.
Braintrust reading specialists are dyslexia experts.
With training in a wide range of research-based programs, our certified teachers understand the science of reading. By identifying strengths and understanding challenges, our tutors will create a customized learning experience to meet your child’s unique needs.
