One of The Clay Center’s our biggest partners related to child and adolescent health is the MassGeneral Hospital for Children (MGHfC), which provides treatment and services for children of all ages in virtually every specialty and subspecialty of medicine and surgery, as well as preventive and primary care.

Our colleagues at MGHfC recently shared with us that a number of parents they see have questions about dyslexia. Dr. Braaten produced a short video for MGHfC to address some of those questions. In this video, she answers questions about what dyslexia is, recognizing the signs of dyslexia, and modes of treatment.

Proper diagnosis, treatment, and accommodations can help anyone struggling with dyslexia. We hope that this video provides you with some practical support and tools to move toward success.
