#9 Are We There Yet - How Long Does A Dyslexia Remediation Really Take‪?‬ Literacy Untangled Podcast

    • Kids & Family

One of the most common questions I hear from parents after they hire a specialist is, how long will it take to get my child up to grade level? Unfortunately, it’s almost impossible to give a clear, guaranteed timeline of your child’s progress.

 

In this episode, I explore the different factors that go into your child’s success with an interventionist. Your child’s age, individual needs, and the intensity of their instruction all play major roles in their ability to make meaningful progress. 

 

My go-to answer when parents ask how long dyslexia remediation takes is that this process is a marathon, not a sprint. You should anticipate challenges and celebrate milestones along the way. 

 

Listen in to learn more about what to expect when it comes to predicting and tracking your child’s progress.  

 

Listen to the episode on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, or on your favorite podcast platform.

 

Topics Covered:


Red flags to look out for when interviewing a potential service provider
My experience with children who aren’t receiving the right intensity of instruction 
The average timeline to build a strong base of foundational reading skills
What the “Matthew Effect” is and how it applies to your child’s probability of success
