Dyslexia-Inspired Strategies

For Parents Of All Struggling Learners

Six Practical Support Sessions That Make Parents

The Best Helpers They Can Be

The discovery that your child has a learning difficulty can be a frightening, disorientating experience.  Many parents worry that, although they feel they understand their child, they don’t feel they understand his dyslexia. Just as the hardworking dyslexic child is left with feelings of inadequacy after every class test, so his caring, dedicated parents are left feeling ineffectual when they sit down to help him with his homework.
