Dyslexia and Giftedness

At tonight’s meeting there was some discussion about gifted children with dyslexia. I thought I would post a link to Hoagie’s dyslexia page, which will point you to lots of different webpages that you may find useful if your child is gifted and dyslexic. If you are not familiar with Hoagie’s Gifted Education Pages, they contain a great deal of well organised information, and are definitely worth a look.

There are a variety of services for dyslexic children in Hamilton, including SpeLD, the Davis Dyslexia Programme, the Danks Davis approach (different from Davis), and Behavioural Optometry.



  1. Thank you for posting.

    It is a very good thing this awareness day was held; there are many people who don’t realise children can be both gifted and have a learning disability (like dyslexia). One of my members posted about this very issue on my site.
