Thoughts from a Dyslexic ~ Something to Share

 We were watching the news this morning and there was a father/daughter on TV  that explained how she "had" dyslexia but no longer "has it" ( ok lets not go there right now, lol  but anyway) she explained how her dad helped her overcome her struggles by every Saturday evening he would read to her and they explained how this REALLY helped her problem with her Dyslexia. - my son heard this and said. " That's really good mum, but I know that reading more and more is what really helps me and kids. And the thing is, when you read alot like that you do better in everything else. Reading helps all the rest of the stuff, from what I can tell". WOW ~

Oh my goodness its days like this that I just feel so blessed to be able to do what I am doing.  ( Background- my son started off homeschooling at the end of 2nd grade and they said he was reading at 1.8 reading level ( his IEP read) and I had him tested and he was at a K level, just beginning sounds. He now is still working hard at reading but is at a fourth grade level at this point he has made significant progress "in all areas of study" as you heard from him,- and it takes alot of hard work but as you hear from him it's worth it. 

Onward and upward~
