Dyslexia: What is it and How Can it be a Gift?

Dyslexia impacts 1 in 5 people
Winston Churchill, Einstein, and Napoleon were dyslexic
35% of entrepreneurs are dyslexic
40% of self made millionares are dyslexic

Dyslexia is NOT about seeing words backward. It is how individuals process information and sounds to their brain.  It can actually be a gift if the student is taught how to use their gifts and process information.  ​​​
Language and Music House helps Dyslexics through: 
- English Tutoring in Barton Reading and Spelling System
- French Lessons for Dyslexics 
- Tomatis Music Therapy

A great tutoring system for children, teenagers, or adults who struggle with spelling, reading, and writing due to dyslexia or a learning disability.

Want to Grow Your Mind with Language and Music?
Welcome to Language and Music House

The best time to expose children to music and language is while they are young; as by high school many people have lost the ability to hear specific accents or tones. That is the mission of Language and Music House, to grow minds through language and music. This includes Dyslexic minds as well, which are powerful but need to be taught reading and languages in a different way. At Language and Music House each class is tailored to each individual child or adult.
