The next part of my journey happened in sixth grade. In my middle school, they created two classes to help students with strategies for math and reading for New Jersey’s standardized test, NJASK. I remember being so frustrated with the speed at which the class was taught, and I found it very difficult to keep up with the other students. This frustration led to me questioning, once again, why I was so “slow.” I communicated my thoughts in an email to my mom that said:

“Hi mom. I hate school. I hate tests. I hate homework. My homework and school work is very hard to me. My brain does not want to think. My brain is going down the tube. I need a break from school. Love, Willie”

I was so overwhelmed when I figured out my son was dyslexic I froze.  Trust me, it is not a death sentence. You can help your child to be anything they dream of with lots of hard work from all

Your son is so bright.  He is one of the most intelligent kids I have met.  I am not sure why I am tutoring him. His divergent, critical thinking is a strength

Dyslexic students must be taught in a systematic way.  Orton Gillingham is the only scientifically proven method to produce positive results for dyslexic students.

"Our Elementary Education majors have no training in Dyslexia.  They are completely unprepared when they graduate and begin teaching in the classroom. They cannot identify or remediate dyslexia."
