Their problems may include difficulties in spelling words, reading quickly, writing words, “sounding out” words in the head, pronouncing words when reading aloud, and understanding what they are reading. Often, these difficulties are first noticed at school. The difficulties are involuntary and people with this disorder have a normal desire to learn.

October is Dyslexia Awareness Month. McAllen ISD will hold a variety of break-out sessions. The keynote speaker will be Dr. German Corso – a child and adolescent psychiatrist. Dr. Corso will share his knowledge of ADHD and behavioral disorders that can accompany Dyslexia.

For more information, please contact McAllen ISD Dyslexia Director Salvador Flores at 956-661-6882 or salvador.flores@mcallenisd.net.
