Mike Jones is sharing his dyslexia journey on the show. It’s not an easy story to tell, since growing up with dyslexia can be painful and challenging for so many children. By sharing his story, Mike hopes to bring more awareness of dyslexia to all schools and educators.
Did you know that the short film, MICAL, was based on Mike’s story when he was seven years old and struggling to learn to read? When Mike was identified with dyslexia, his teachers were still unable and unwilling to help him. He couldn’t even spell his own name. Mike’s mother, Pat Jones, made the decision to learn everything she could about dyslexia, including the Orton-Gillingham (OG) approach to teaching reading. She homeschooled Mike using what she learned about OG and developed games to help him learn. Pat changed Mike’s future. Mike learned to not give up on himself. Now, Mike and his wife, Tiffany James, support families through their company, Nessy Learning. Mike has adapted his mother’s games into digital games (apps) for children to learn to read.
