Dyslexia and Brain Based Learning

There are various forms of dyslexia. One is letter reversals. Another is not being able to hear and pronounce sounds. Leaving out or inserting little words which change the meanings of sentences is also a form of dyslexia.

Brain Based Learning helps dyslexic readers. Readers are taught how to overcome their individual reading issues by using reading techniques that involve the brain memory. Text to speech applications are used. Building a large sight word vocabulary is another pathway. Making comprehension out of the words is the most important.

Just reading words does not help the reader comprehend what is being read. It is necessary for the reader to stop and truly understand the meaning of the words being read. This means possibly stopping at the end of each paragraph and summarizing the information read.

Dyslexic students are welcome at Ed Sage School. This is a school that uses Brain Based Learning to help dyslexics. Enrollment is now open for the 2022-2023 school year for grades 5-8. Apply now and get more information. Contact Beth Silver, Head of School at 310-720-0390 or The school website is:
