I am a mom of two young adults gifted with Dyslexia. I have watched them struggle and succeed during their educational careers.
We were told "your son is lazy, you aren't reading to him enough, don't worry-he'll catch up." Not until his fourth grade teacher mentioned dyslexia, did we learn about the warning signs and get him tutoring.
I have sat through the homework nightmares, the countless IEP meetings, sent emails to teachers who wouldn't follow the accommodations as well as bask in the pride of their accomplishments.
My goal is to help struggling readers not only gain confidence in their reading/spelling skills but in themselves!!
