BRIDGING THE GAP BY EMPOWERING CHILDREN, FAMILIES, AND SCHOOLS THROUGH MAKING MINDFUL CONNECTIONS.
October also shines a light with bringing awareness to Dyslexia. We wanted to share resources for yourself, for your family, and for your child's school. Awareness creates understanding which then empowers those around us to be able to see the struggles our children experience. We are then better equipped to help and teach them in a way they can be successful. One terrific resource is the International Dyslexia Association: https://dyslexiaida.org/dyslexia-basics/ Read here to find out common signs and symptoms of Dyslexia starting from preschool-high school: https://www.understood.org/en/learning-attention-issues/child-learning-disabilities/dyslexia/understanding-dyslexia#item1 Click here to experience how a child is dealing with a learning or attention difficulty: https://www.understood.org/en/tools/through-your-childs-eyes?gclid=CjwKCAjw3_HOBRBaEiwAvLBbomy-fC21AGAv14y2aQkw1iHZOhcYpbzgRiDfqGZ0TlM5cOekC9fOLxoC3SwQAvD_BwE Of course, we feel that all children benefit from being taught as if they have Dyslexia.
