Dyslexia: Basic Facts

Licensed psychologist Dr. Dawn Doup recently opened Foundations Dyslexia and Learning Centers with two colleagues in order to provide services for children, adolescents, and adults with dyslexia.  Dyslexia is a learning disability that includes difficulties with accurate or fluid word recognition, poor decoding, and poor spelling abilities.  It impacts one’s ability to read and write and often affects an individual’s self-image due to feeling less capable than others.  The effects of untreated dyslexia can have a long-term impact including problems with education and job performance.  Doup will discuss symptoms of dyslexia as well as how it is evaluated and interventions that help with both children and adults.
