- There are no medications that treat dyslexia, but medication could help kids deal with co-occurring issues like ADHD or anxiety.

- There are many ways beyond medication and therapy to help kids with dyslexia succeed at school and in life.

4- Does the dyslexia treatment option directly or indirectly identify and address the relevant issues
