Welcome!

Is your bright child struggling in school?

 

Is their reading slow, choppy, or just plain inaccurate?

 

Is their spelling a mess?

 

Are they beginning to dislike school, or coming up with ways to avoid it? 

 

Or maybe their teacher says they are behind or need extra help?

 

And what about those math facts? Are they a nightmare for your child to remember?

 

If any of these scenarios are happening to your child, you've come to the right place!

 

Research shows that dyslexia is the most common learning disability, affecting up to 20 percent of our population, to varying degrees. Dyslexia often runs in families and makes it hard for people to read, write, and spell - despite having normal intelligence (and often times very high intelligence). Many families struggle for years trying a variety of programs to help their child. Often times, little progress is made.

 

I'm here to tell you that there is HOPE for people struggling with dyslexia! Research has shown which methods work best to teach dyslexic students to read and spell. I'm happy to be using these proven methods to help students reach their highest potential.

 

 

 

Please visit the section Is It Dyslexia? to learn more about this common learning disability and if it could be the cause of your child's struggles.

 

If you already know your child needs tutoring or is dyslexic, see the Tutoring section to learn more about the type of tutoring that I offer.

 

If you are unsure if dyslexia tutoring is what you need, visit the Screenings section to learn more about pinpointing your child's difficulty.

 

Feel free to call me at 208-867-6093 or email carolyn@hopefordyslexia.com. I offer free consultations to explore your child's difficulties and suggest improvement options.

Oregon Passes Dyslexia Law

The first time Lincoln High School senior Emery Roberts realized she was different was in kindergarten.

She and a “frenemy” were neck-and-neck in a reading contest. Emery even remembers which book proved an insurmountable hurdle; it had a tiger on the cover.

 

Back-to-School Guide: Must-Have Apps for Dyslexic Students

As the days of summer fun come to a close, thoughts of reading assignments, worksheets, and essays return to the forefront of many students’ minds.

For students with dyslexia, work that requires reading and writing can be daunting, and it often saps the enjoyment out of school. Fortunately, more and more families and schools are discovering assistive technology (AT) and the ability it has to lessen stress and give children a greater sense of academic independence.
