Dyslexia is a neurological condition caused by a different wiring of the brain. It is often genetic. Research indicates that dyslexia has no relationship to intelligence. To learn to read, people with dyslexia should seek out reading instruction that is based upon a systematic and explicit understanding of language structure including phonological and phonemic awareness. Virginia Dyslexia Therapy provides intensive academic therapy meeting the highest standards of the International Dyslexia Association, International Multisensory Structured Language Education Council, and the Academic Language Therapy Association.
