Sheila Rowe, Speech-Language Pathologist andAssociate-in-

Practitioners and Educators, will be sharing

information on the program that is offered for

difficulties with reading, spelling and writing.


What is Dyslexia? Students with dyslexia experience

difficulties with language skills such as reading, spelling,

writing, and pronouncing words. It is referred to as a

learning disability because dyslexia can make it very

difficult for a student to succeed academically in the typical/

traditional classroom. (Ontario Branch of the International

Dyslexia Association)


What does it look like? Some of the symptoms of dyslexia include

slow or inaccurate reading, poor spelling, poor writing, or mixing up

similar words. Some children manage to learn early reading and

spelling skills, but run into problems around grades 3 and 4 as the

language demands become more challenging.
