It is extremely important that Dyslexic people use multisensory techniques whenever possible. The combination of using multiple senses increases the chance of retaining the new information received. Most Dyslexic people find it challenging to retain information, so anything that will help with the petaintion, is desirable. Many people ask me what multisensory really means, so I am providing a list of how we incorporate multisensory tools into our Orton-Gillingham based programs.
Jess Arce, the owner and program director of Lexia Learners, began her Dyslexia career quite unexpectedly. After moving back west from the Dyslexic friendly town of Prosper, Texas Miss Jess began homeschooling her youngest two of four children in 2010.
