The Dyslexia Paradox

What is the Dyslexia Paradox?

The dyslexia paradox is the discrepancy between when we currently diagnose dyslexia and the time research indicates is the most optimal window for early reading intervention. So currently we are diagnosing kids after repeated failure — so we also call it the “wait to fail paradox” or “wait to fail approach” — which is usually at the end of second grade at the earliest, maybe beginning of third grade.
