The LIT Group goes Red  for Dyslexia Awareness

As we recognize and celebrate dyslexia awareness, we at The LIT Group wanted to help bring awareness by sharing some tips and information about dyslexia; what it is, how we assess for it, how to seek intervention and the social and emotional impact of living with dyslexia.  In the the clips below, you'll get lots of information and resources if you are someone living with dyslexia or you are caring for someone who lives with this learning difference.  We hope you enjoy!
