No two children, dyslexic or not, have the same learning profile. The only shared trait among people with dyslexia is that they read at levels significantly lower than typical for people of their age. The complete definition of Dyslexia includes other conditions. Difficulty with handwriting known as dysgraphia, and difficulty with math known as dyscalculia are also grouped under the dyslexia umbrella. As well, conditions like ADHD and anxiety often co-exist with dyslexia. We will teach students with any and all of these learning profiles.


We accept students with the following:


  • Diagnosed with dyslexia or another language-based learning difficulty who may also have attention deficit disorder
