Moreover, please use our Facebook page and platform as your own on-line community: a place to enable greater education, discussions, and outreach regarding Dyslexia. Currently in Ontario, if you have a child with Dyslexia they are most likely to be identified between Grades 4 and 6 and already be at least one grade level behind in their reading. Grade 3 EQAO for reading and writing, there is a higher probability that they will not be able to fully catch up. For many children, that will mean they can’t take academic stream level courses at secondary school. We need your help to raise the awareness of Dyslexia not only in October but throughout the year. The world has become a smaller place thanks to the Net and Social Media.
We know that children should be screened for Dyslexia in Kindergarten. We know that all primary age school children deserve Best Practice evidence-based reading instruction, methods which were studied and laid out in the US National Read Panel Report of 2000. We know when some children fail to read even after using scientifically tested teaching methods, these children need to be quickly identified and provided with systematic and explicit structured literacy-based reading instruction as promoted by the International Dyslexia Association. Waiting to fail is no longer an acceptable option.
