Nicholas had always been our child who we just couldn't figure out his struggles in school. As a kindergarten teacher I just couldn't pin point what was going on. A dear friend and neighbor asked one day after my sons very discouraging parent teacher conference if I thought he may have dyslexia. I was honest and said I knew very little about it. I went home and did my research and I was shocked. He fit the criteria in nearly every category! I looked for help and had him screened. Our hunch was correct. He has dyslexia. He started private tutoring and made huge strides. I decided myself to become a tutor and last year took a class to become a dyslexia screener. Nicholas is in 6th grade and doing great. Dyslexia awareness is so important! It can change lives!!
