Parenting a child with dyslexia can feel confusing and often lonely. You may need to work through deeply personal feelings, including frustration or grief, and may become disillusioned with educational professionals that cant offer quick fixes. There is much to learn and an overwhelming amount of information to absorb. Its important for parents to map out a path from awareness to advocacy. Becoming a persuasive and courageous advocate takes focus, but you may ultimately find yourself in a position to speak out to a broader audience about systemic change!

Learning Outcomes:

  • ADVOCACY & LEGISLATION: Identify avenues for advocating for children with dyslexia and related learning disabilities.
