Parents

As a parent, it’s easy to feel alone when you’re struggling to get the support your dyslexic child needs. The questions can seem overwhelming: Where do I go for help? How do I get a diagnosis? Should I consider a different school? What reading programs work best? Will my child ever read? Will my child be able to go to college?
You’ve come to the right place. In this section of the website you’ll find a wealth of resources from experts; stories from others parents; and tools you can use to help set your children the best possible path. You’ll also discover that you are far from alone.



Luckily, parents can play an active role in the early identification of a reading problem. All that is required is an observant parent who knows what she is looking for and who is willing to spend time with her child listening to him speak and read.
