Special Needs

Dyslexia

Dyslexia

I have had Dyslexia throughout my life. I know firsthand the problems and challenges of a young person with this affliction. It is a brain-based learning disability that specifically impairs a person's ability to read, spell and perform math functions. Despite being dyslexic I have been able to earn bachelor’s and master’s degrees as well successfully function in the business world. It’s a matter of perseverance and realizing your abilities and limitations. With this background I am in a good position to help young learners who are dyslexic. I am sympathetic and understanding of their situation. I have the temperament and the patience to guide and encourage them as they move ahead with their education.
