MISSION VIEJO, Calif. - Sept. 29, 2015 - PRLog -- PRIDE Learning Center, the only tutoring center in Mission Viejo specifically designed for students with dyslexia and other learning differences, provides one-on-one reading, writing and comprehension help using a specialized Orton-Gillingham, multisensory reading program.

“Dyslexia is not reading words backwards or writing letters backwards.  This is a common misconception,” states Karina Richland, the owner of PRIDE Learning Center in Mission Viejo.  “There are many misconceptions about the true meaning of dyslexia” says Richland, “many people don’t understand that people with dyslexia are often very smart and can achieve great successes.  This month, we hope to bring awareness to dyslexia and educate the Mission Viejo community.”

According to the International Dyslexia Association, 1 in 10 people experience symptoms of dyslexia.  Warning signs of dyslexia may include difficulty learning letters and sounds, difficulty reading fluently, difficulty spelling accurately, and difficulty memorizing number facts and completing math operations.

“The sooner a child with dyslexia is given proper instruction, particularly in the very early grades, the more likely it is that they will have fewer or milder difficulties later in life” states Richland.

Throughout the month of October, parents can bring their child to PRIDE Learning Center for a free assessment that will measure their reading abilities.  To schedule an appointment contact the Mission Viejo PRIDE Learning Center at 949-484-0230 or visit the website at www.pridelearningcenter.com
