It isn't uncommon for younger kids to learn to read faster than older siblings when dyslexia is in the house.  Here are some tips for how we have handled this in our home with dyslexic kids!   #homeschool   #dyslexia  
This scenario is far better than your dyslexic child being in a classroom full of kids who read better than him, it still can cause some confusion for your older child.

Do you ever feel like you're not doing enough in your homeschool?  #homeschool #ihn #hsbloggers  
Pursuing interests and tailoring subjects around these interests isn't as easy to gauge as neat and tidy textbooks and workbooks.

Fortunately, with time and experience come wisdom.  Here are 8 things that I wish I had known before I started homeschooling my kids with dyslexia.   #dyslexia   #homeschool  
There are memories of my early years of homeschooling that I wish I could forget. They were the days that I misunderstood learning, dyslexia, ADD and the beautiful freedom that I had in homeschooling.

After homeschooling my kids with dyslexia for the past 20 years, I get a LOT of questions about:
- how best to teach kids with dyslexia
- how to set goals
- how to nurture a love of learning
- how to handle the idea of being 'behind'
- balancing home life and school when school takes a long time
- which homeschool methods work best with kids with dyslexia
- which homeschool curricula work best with kids with dyslexia
- how to adapt curriculum to your dyslexic child's needs
- how to implement effective remediation and accommodation
- planning for high school and college

If you or someone you know is looking for guidance in these areas, visit my consulting page for more information and to book your appointment.

If you've never taken a dyslexia simulation, do it! You'll never look at dyslexia in the same way! #dyslexia #1in5
Take a Dyslexia Simulation and experience what it is like to be dyslexic.

Using audio books is a great way to tackle that read aloud book list.  Here are our top picks for sources of audio books with awesome value, service and ease of use.   #homeschool   #dyslexia  
Since reading aloud to my kids is one of my top goals for my homeschool this year, I've been researching the best audio book services available.

Teaching kids with dyslexia requires planning for things that you may not expect.   #dyslexia   #homeschool  
I love the planning phase of the homeschool year but, after 20 years of teaching my kids at home, I know how often my plans have been overrun by real life!
