Is your student struggling with dyslexia or another learning disability? 


Reading is a complex process that involves synchronized interaction between visual perceptual and cognitive functions. Inefficient visual perception and underdeveloped phonemic aware skills will result in mental energy being consumed when only processing text rather than supporting reading comprehension. 


Visual perceptual deficits show up in four out of every ten students. Phonemic awareness (dyslexia) deficits are found in one of five students.  Lack of identification and intervention have an enormous effect on self-worth, educational progress, graduation rates, family incomes, and obtaining one's goals.







The Learning Lab staff is uniquely qualified to assist students through interventions that improve visual perceptual delays and phonemic awareness skill-building--both essential to reading! At the Learning Lab, we are continuously researching and planning for each student's specific reading needs. 


The Learning Lab is the only non-school entity in Southeast Missouri to be certified as an official Vision Intervention Site and our staff systematically participates in Dyslexia intervention training in order to understand and improve reading instruction.
