Best Thing I Have Ever Done

Jake wrote this as an assignment during his senior year of high school. Both Jake and his mom have given me permission to share this in the hopes that it will inspire other struggling students.

The best thing I have ever done
by Jake Pedersen

I was diagnosed with dyslexia right before I entered seventh grade. I was told that my best option was to go to a reading specialist three times a week for roughly three years.

As a stubborn young kid, I imagined that the tutoring would be a waste of time and that I could get along fine without it.

But as my other classmates continued to thrive in the rigorous middle school I attended, I was stuck being able to only read at about a third grade level.

In seventh grade, I was the slowest reader in my class and I could not comprehend what I was reading. I knew that something had to change.

As much as I thought that tutoring might be a waste of time, I decided that I should just bite the bullet and go because that was what I needed to do to be able to keep improving in school.

Now that I'm about to graduate from High School, I realize that all of the activities, games, and time with friends I missed to go to tutoring, don't compare to what I have received from it.

Those three years of work were the best thing I've ever done. They helped me get to the point where I am one of the better readers in the class and can keep up with everyone else.

It isn't always easy to do something that seems like a lot of work, but in the long run, it can open up a million different possibilities.

If your child has trouble sounding out unknown words when he reads (which is called decoding), and he has poor spelling when writing letters to grandma or essays in class, it is highly likely he has dyslexia.

Every public and private school needs someone on staff who can screen for dyslexia accurately during the early critical school year. Being able to screen would also be valuable for every Reading or Learning Specialist, every Speech-Language Therapist, every School Psychologist, and every Barton tutor.

Graduates of the Screening for Dyslexia course become passionate dyslexia specialists who will change the future of so many children in their community.

This course is only offered twice a year and the Phoenix session is almost full.

Only 3 seats left in the Chicago session, which starts on July 25.

This is the last time Susan Barton will offer this course live.

Sign up right away if you want one of those seats.

For full details, go to our website, or download our summer seminar brochure.

Stop Judging Me
by Judy Mouland, Life Coach

This one is for "my tribe"... the parents who are raising the spirited kids - the quirky kids - the anxious ones - and the off beat ones who march to their own drummer. It's time to take a stand for their mental health - and ours.

Some kids ARE harder to raise than others, so stop judging me.
