We are a family of 5 planning to make aliya in 6 month from the USA. My daughter Maya will be 6 years old in March (born and raised in the US speaking mostly English), she was diagnosed with dyslexia. A neurophysiologist evaluated and recommends that we keep Maya in English speaking school in Israel for few years until she knows how to read English and only then teach her Hebrew. That way she will have a solid knowledge of one language. Introducing Hebrew at that point will not “mess’ the English and she will allays be able to go back to it in the future. We assume that at some point in the future she might need the English (either if we go back to the USA or if she ever wants to study in English speaking school).
