You must try harder.
Growing up in Atlanta, David Flink heard those words repeatedly — from his teachers, his father and others — as he struggled with dyslexia and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
Slowly he learned to embrace himself as a “different thinker” — and a new world opened.
Today, up to 1 in 5 children and adults in the United States has learning and attention issues.
For people with dyslexia, it is not a matter of “trying harder.” Learning to read, write and spell requires intensive instruction that follows a specific sequence and scope. Our Orton-Gillingham approach is grounded in multisensory methods and repetition that creates changes in the brain, making it more receptive to language processing.
LexiAbility has a caring, professional staff and community which understands that your child is not struggling because of lacking effort or intelligence. We understand the science behind dyslexia and provide effective, research-based interventions that can help with your child’s challenges – while allowing your child’s strengths to flourish.
