    Season 3, Episode 1 - Creating Connections

    Season 3, Episode 1 - Creating Connections

    Anna Edwards is a dyslexic learner, but she has made an effort to hide that from her friends and colleagues.  For Anna, there was a stigma surrounding the "D" word. She shares with us in this episode that she felt fearful for what being dyslexic meant for her as a person.  This feeling was reinforced over the years by comments of not being smart enough or people sharing with her how surprised they were that she COULD do so much. 

    Now as a pediatric nurse practitioner she uses her skill set to provide empathy and active listening for her clientele. This approach allows her patients to open up in a unique and thoughtful way. Her approach to reinforces a more holistic model in a very scientific field of work combines all types of learning styles to her career as a dyslexic person in a highly educated field. Most importantly, Anna is working through these concepts of self-worth and reclaiming her value, not only for her, but also to prepare the path for her own daughter.

    12. More Dyslexically Successful to Come

    12. More Dyslexically Successful to Come

    Like most things in life, the best course of action is not always the path chosen.  This is what happened with this podcast. After my last episode, I had a desire to reach a bigger audience and I thought I might do that with Moon Child Radio, BUT, after considering that, I decided parents were my target audience and that I would just need a new podcast.

    So, Dyslexically Successful will continue and then in January 2021, I will release Present Moment Parenting.

    I am accepting guests for both podcasts.

    If you have a story to share about being dyslexic, I would love to connect with you for an interview.

    11. Back to the drawing board to find ageless art

    11. Back to the drawing board to find ageless art

    Sarah Vickery is a dyslexic learner, but beyond that she is a creator.  Even though she did not speak until after the age of three, she found comfort in her doodles and drawings.  These drawings helped her make sense of the world and process her thoughts. Drawing and sketching was always a safe-haven for Sarah. She now has created something incredible to bring this same concept to children, not only in the UK, but really world-wide.

    She hosts online classes or Cartoon Club with both children and adults.

    I had the pleasure of attending a class, and it was a lot of fun.  I am personally not able to get out my thoughts as easily in a drawing, but I definitely felt a catharsis in the process.

    And as Sarah will share with us here, it is always about the process.

    To learn more about Sarah's online art classes for children and adults visit:

    To share your and your children's drawings and see what Sarah does in class join Cartoon Club Facebook Group

    Season 2, Episode 9 - Gilbert Chavarria Pulling Up in the Short Bus

    Season 2, Episode 9 - Gilbert Chavarria Pulling Up in the Short Bus

    Gilbert Chavarria is a dyslexic learner and proud of it.  It wasn't always like that for him.  Especially in public school.  As one of the "short-bus" riders, he attended a school within a school from the 6-8th grades.  This self-contained classroom was for the slow-learners and trouble-makers. He was not identified as dyslexic until the 10th grade.  Elementary school unfortunately did not help him develop strong reading skills, but rather through his experiences he developed a sense of humor, defense mechanisms and resiliency.
    In this episode he recalls the stigma of being in this "special program" as well as the disappointment he sensed from his mom when she would yell at him to  "just work harder." 
    Please join Gilbert and I for a heart-felt conversation about dyslexia and how it has become a strength for him.
