GREAT Dyslexia Websites---2014

As a follow-up to our last post, Decoding Dyslexia: The Grassroots Movement Making a Difference!, we immediately wanted to provide our readers with more internet resources to help with the challenges of dyslexia. This past week, we did our research to locate additional websites helping to make a difference in the lives of those who daily face the hurdles of dyslexia.

We have presented several lists of dyslexia resources, including one in late 2013 with websites for dyslexia and dysgraphia (BEST Websites for Dyslexia & Dysgraphia). In this new article, we are providing additional websites offering current information on this topic of dyslexia, each with a different approach. We hope you will find these resources helpful for someone you care about who struggles daily with dyslexia.

Helpful Dyslexia Websites---2014 helps to address the needs of students with dyslexia. Russell Van Brocklen provides teleseminars for parents, teachers and other adults who want to help children with dyslexia or who are themselves affected by this learning difference (to begin in late March 2014). Mr. Van Brocklen and the organization also provide specialized tutoring for motivated students with dyslexia. The company is based in the U.S.A.
