I could no longer stay silent and had to address my biggest fears and the problems that they were having. My son was in grade 4 & he was crumbling before our eyes. I had already failed with helping his grades 2 & 3 spelling school work and the frustration & helplessness that filled the house felt horrible. I had to confront the educators, questioning if my son could be dyslexic.
"Oh, I don't know! I don't think we have had dyslexic kids in our school before." Now I laugh, at least 1 in 5 people are dyslexic but understanding dyslexia is not well understood in school. 1.55 billion people are dyslexic and many of them will give great things to the world instead of being uneducated or even incarcerated...
Thinking outside of the box, led me to understand dyslexia & how to be an Orton Gillingham Therapeutic Language tutor & literate too.
If I can learn to read, write, and even tutor literacy and numeracy @ 40, & change my story, so can you!
