Although I have read a lot about dyslexia, I am finding these classes to be very valuable. The depth that you go into, as well as the practical solutions you discuss are exactly what I needed to feel more confident in teaching my son. I particularly appreciate how much you incorporate real life examples into the learning. It’s what I have been missing in other sources. Thank you so much for taking this on! It must be a ton of work, but it is greatly appreciated.©©
I no longer lay awake at night wondering how I can be effective in teaching him to read. Homeschooling with dyslexia courses gave me the tools I needed.
I have been so blessed by your blog. I was so happy to find another large family who was also dealing with learning challenges. I finally felt understood and like I was not just doing everything wrong, I gained more confidence in what I was doing instead of being steaped in guilt.
Since those early days of tears and exasperation, Marianne has been successfully homeschooling her children with dyslexia using individualized, multi-sensory and research-based methods. All people with dyslexia can learn to read, write and spell with the right methods!
Hi, I’m Marianne Sunderland, author of Dyslexia 101: Truths, Myths and What Really Works, an experienced home educator, homeschool consultant and certified dyslexia tutor with 20 years of experience homeschooling kids with dyslexia.
When I set up my online site, Homeschooling With Dyslexia, I set it up with one clear purpose in mind: To help as many homeschooling families be as successful as possible.
Whether I was coaching parents new to homeschooling kids with dyslexia or helping established homeschool families adjust their teaching methods, my goal was the same – I wanted to make it easier for them than it was for me when I first started out over 20 years ago.
After learning and implementing the research-based methods in our homeschool, I realized that:
- School time was no longer wrought with frustration and tears.
- My kids were really learning and the ideas were finally ‘sticking’.
- I felt much more confident as a teacher.
- I had a plan that was working for me that could be taught to others.
As a homeschool parent your goals are to educate and nurture your whole child. Oftentimes, unfortunately, when there are learning struggles, we can spend all day working on areas of weakness and miss out on opportunities to inspire and nurture the significant higher level thinking skills that our dyslexic children possess.
According to the International Dyslexia Association, “dyslexic students need direct, systematic and individual instruction in reading and spelling and traditional schools do not always provide adequate levels of service.”
It is no wonder that more and more families with children who are dyslexic are choosing to bring their kids home to teach.
Statistics show that:
- Approximately 20% of people have dyslexia
- Although 20% of the population are entrepreneurs, 40% of entrepreneurs are dyslexic
- Of the 85% of prison inmates who are illiterate, 40-50% of those have dyslexia
What makes the difference in which path these kids choose? How they are educated!
