She says dyslexia teaching based on neuroscience research is far more advanced overseas.

“We’re that far behind the game, it is incredibly frustrating.”

They may have trouble learning to speak and doing such things as learning nursery rhymes as a result of memory and attention span difficulties. Kids with dyslexia also have difficulty recognizing letters and sounds, reading comprehension, and have poor spelling and letter recognition.
