Early Intervention 

Here is a link to a study that shows the importance of early detection and intervention of dyslexia.  If we could identify and help children BEFORE first grade we would save these children the pain of struggling in school and would not need private tutoring.  This is what I hope Decoding Dyslexia can do.

If you or your child needs help to close the achievement gap the good news is that it is NEVER too late.
