American Dyslexia Association Inc. Chooses Jaensch Immigration Law Firm for their Expansion to the U.S. MarketPosted: December 14th, 2009 | Author: Chris Jaensch | Filed under: Sarasota Immigrants | No Comments »
An international non profit organization which educates the
public and trains educators about Dyslexia has chosen Jaensch Immigration Law
Firm to implement their process of setting up their international headquarters
in Sarasota, Florida.
A non-profit organization, The American Dyslexia Association provides support for dyslexic and dyscalculic people with free information and teaching
aids. “Teachers, psychologists and medical personnel can
benefit from the training and diagnostic tools. Educators can coach parents on how to support their children. We’ve had wide success internationally,” says Pailer-Duller, Executive Director of the organization and head of the Sarasota office.
Pailer-Duller believes that, although there are a number of associations in America that cater to the needs of the dyslexic community, her organization has something unique to offer.
Established in Austria 15 years ago, the Austrian
Dyslexia Association offers dyslexia training with certification for educators of children with special needs.
The primary methodology they promote, called Attention – Function – Symptoms Method, has been proven and practiced successfully in over 40 countries. “Most other methods focus on only one part of the equation,” says Pailer-Duller. “One might emphasize the practice of reading and writing, another one might focus on improving attention and concentration, and yet another one for improving sensory perceptions. With our method, we have combined all three parts. That’s why it’s so successful.”
Expanding to the U.S. Market.
Pailer-Duller says they picked Jaensch Immigration Law Firm
because of their longstanding reputation and experience working with European
companies establishing themselves in the U.S. “They knew exactly what documents they
needed, and there was quite a bit of paperwork,” she recalls. “We could have never got this thing going by
When asked whether she noted any differences between
approaches to handling dyslexia in the U.S.
or in Europe, Pailer-Duller said that it
depended on who the parents were sent to for help. Of course, specialists in the United States
are more prone to prescribing medication, and Europeans might be more likely to
try a child psychologist. “There is so
much misdiagnosis when it comes to Dyslexia on both continents. Usually, dyslexia is neither a medical or
psychological problem. It’s a sensory
perception anomaly that needs the attention of an educator that teaches reading
and writing in a certain way. Because of
their reading and writing difficulties, dyslexic children often become
inattentive when it’s time to read and write.”
Pailer-Duller says this often leads to an ADD misdiagnosis in the U.S., and
medication may be prescribed which is unnecessary, and may even worsen the
situation. “Using the services of a certified Dyslexia Trainer
is the most effective solution,” she said.
