I am the author, creator, and Mom behind Dyslexia Mom Life. We learned our daughter was dyslexic when she was in first grade. I am passionate about helping moms raise healthy, happy, and thriving dyslexic sons and daughters. Moms find me when their son or daughter is first diagnosed with dyslexia and are struggling to make sense of this new world and when they are struggling with the daily grind of raising dyslexic children. Together we laugh, cry, and figure out how to live each day intentionally.
Dyslexia is what some call an invisible disability. Your family, friends, and neighbors will not see the learning difference of dyslexia. Many people will not understand your daily struggles and say things like, read to your child more or she should study more or try harder in school. Most are well-meaning comments, but they are also inaccurate and many times hurtful. Your child’s brain literally processes language differently from everyone else. Guess what? That is not a bad thing. Your child’s dyslexic brain will help her do amazing things, if you help her to believe that she can do anything. Help her to see who she will become in the future.
