Love to read? Not many kids with dyslexia do. Reading is hard, and struggling to decode the words can deliver a big hit to a child’s self-esteem. But, when children give up on reading, they are missing out on a world of possibility, imagination, and faraway journeys. Active listening can make a huge difference for a struggling reader. Participants learn how to instill a love of reading, foster empowerment, improve active-listening skills, and help children embrace what makes them different—all from a family who has overcome these struggles.
