Our Mission

FixLexia is a clinic whose mission is to serve individuals with dyslexia and other reading related difficulties through the use of clinical evaluation and reading interventionists.  

Our Approach

Programming

FixLexia recognizes every child has a unique academic profile. While our programming is systematic, it is flexible enough to meet the needs of individual clients. We believe the meaning of individualized goes beyond a one on one setting. Each student has a targeted path for achievement; our goal is to be the foundation for reading and spelling achievement. We aim to engage students in the process of learning by capitalizing on strengths while their restoring confidence often in shambles after years of limited progress. Our approach distinctive and elevated beyond traditional intervention. FixLexia's interventions are ground in scientific research. Our interventionists use proven methods shown to improve reading, writing and spelling. 

FixLexia utilizes an Orton-Gillingham approach. Orton-Gillingham is a broad multi-sensory language methodology that incorporates auditory, visual, and kinesthetic elements. Orton-Gillingham has long been considered the "Gold Standard" for dyslexia treatment. While Orton-Gillingham is an essential intervention for dyslexic students, it is effective for any student learning to read, write and spell. 

Evaluation 

Clinical evaluation is the foundation when developing individualized action oriented intervention plans. It is not enough to know that a child struggles to read or spell. The goal of our evaluations is to find out WHY a child struggles to read. Initially our clients are evaluated in areas of phonemic awareness, phonological awareness, oral language, orthographic processing and spelling. If additional evaluation is warranted, subsequent evaluation is available. FixLexia evaluations not only determine why an individual is struggling to read and spell but WHAT can be done to improve those deficit areas. We have been told time and time again by our clients that our evaluation reports provide concrete, actionable items for how to best to remediate and accommodate deficits associated with Dyslexia.   Examining a child's academic needs should be ongoing and generated from multiple sources. The main objective for continuous evaluation is to identify specific areas of need and to define appropriate interventions to remediate areas of concern.

FixLexia offers clinical assessment and researched based interventions.  Advanced diagnostic screenings and psycho-educational evaluations are available upon request.
