    Shining the Light on Dyslexia

    Shining the Light on Dyslexia

    When you learn your child is dyslexic, you may feel lost and not know where to go for advice.  That is one bright spot about dyslexia - the dyslexia community.  You can find support from local moms who are walking the dyslexia parenting journey or reach out to an expert like Stephanie Hill from the Lighthouse Academy for Dyslexia.  One thing that our community has in common is that we are all here to help you navigate your dyslexia parenting journey.

    Stephanie Hill is the marketing director for the Lighthouse Academy for Dyslexia.  She shares her personal journey as an educator and what drove her to learn how to better teach her students to learn to read by using the Orton-Gillingham approach. 

    If you have ever been curious about a dyslexia immersion school or why a teacher would change career paths to learn to teach reading through a different approach specifically to help students learn to read, then today's episode is for you.

    Dyslexia is Better Shared Together with Christin Woods and Abby Ramos

    Dyslexia is Better Shared Together with Christin Woods and Abby Ramos

    Christin and Abby are two moms also on the dyslexia parenting journey who know it can be hard but are willing to do what it takes to preserve the hope, confidence, and giftedness of the world changers we are raising.

    "Things hard are better shared together."

    When Christin and Abby were college roommates they never dreamed that they would later be sharing their dyslexia parenting journey together.   Like most moms raising children with dyslexia, their dyslexia journey has similarities and differences.   Along their dyslexia parenting journey, they realized their own strengths and gifts for building bridges of understanding and hope while learning to confront shame.

    On today's podcast episode, Christin and Abby share their personal dyslexia journey. They also share the inspiration for @dyslexiatogetherbox, you may be surprised how they came up with this great subscription box idea.  We had such a great conversation.  I know you are going to love getting to know a few moms raising dyslexics.

    How can you help your child?  Start by identifying,  nurturing, and empowering your child's dyslexia strengths a.k.a superpowers.

    In this episode, learn to:

    Dyslexia Remediation. Are we done yet?

    Dyslexia Remediation. Are we done yet?

    When traveling,  your kids ask "are we there yet" every 5 minutes, or at least it feels that way. You may not even be out of the subdivision when the kids start asking how much longer until we get there.

    You may feel the same way when you are remediating your child's dyslexia.  Are we done yet? How much longer? 

    Dyslexia parenting is a journey.  Your child will not learn to decode overnight.  It will take time.  Take remediation one day at a time and celebrate the wins along the way. 

    When your child is making progress, it's time to lean in.

    How to Monitor Your Dyslexic Child's Reading Progress

    What amount of reading progress should you expect? How can you monitor the reading progress your child is making during the year?

    There are two approaches to determine if your child is making the appropriate reading progress or not.  If you are wondering if it is time to stay the course or pivot and try something else, this episode is for you.
