Empower Spanish-Speaking and Bilingual Students

Do bilingual children have the same weaknesses in both languages?

Research suggests that the brain development and weaknesses of people identified with dyslexia are similar, regardless of the language they speak. However, the difficulties are not necessarily the same in each language. For example, children may make more reading errors in English than in their native language. But they may read more slowly in their first language.
