Early Dyslexia Diagnosis

Posted: Updated:

Doctors are finding ways to diagnose dyslexia even before a child begins learning to read.

The disorder leads to trouble with decoding and recognizing words, and early intervention is key to treating the problem and avoiding difficulties and frustration at school.
