Useful tips and analogies

I have tried several podcasts on dyslexia to help me support my 7 year old dtr - recently diagnosed and this podcast has been the MOST helpful. The tips to learning & organizing are strategies as a parent I can use and have found it help me understand her dyslexia. Also, the analogies are super helpful! Thank you for sharing!
