This list was developed from a survey of successful, dyslexic college students.  The skills that they attributed to their success are all things we can teach them in high school.   #dyslexia  
If college is something that your child is serious about pursuing, developing these skills can be a part of your high school curriculum.

Teaching kids with dyslexia is so much more than teaching them to read.  Dyslexia can also affect spelling, handwriting, organization and attention.  Get educated so you can educate your child!   #homeschool   #dyslexia  
The blog has been a bit quiet around here because (besides homeschooling 6 kids) I've been working hard on launching not one, but two new courses for you!
