The Latest from our Blog
Multisensory activity of the week:
Many students need practice with spelling, as it is a difficult skill to master. Today’s Multisensory Activity uses the classic game Connect Four to help students practice spelling words!

A Superintendent from a large district recently reached out to Brainspring with the following question…. “I was looking for some statistics regarding the rate of dyslexia in children ages 5-21. Can you point me in the right direction? No one seems to have a real percentage. I just keep seeing 15-20% thrown around with no research behind that number.”

The common statistic, 1 in 5 or 20%, comes from the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity.
