Lindsay's Story

All parents and teachers should watch Lindsay explain how dyslexia forced her to read and spell and the impact that getting early intervention hand on her skills.

Her mother filmed this on her cell phone, then sent it to me with permission to share it.

A different mother shared:

My son is doing the Barton Reading & Spelling System, and it has been AMAZING. Next week he is moving to level 6, and he started in August.

He is at a school that specializes in dyslexia remediation. This school is top notch. They even have teachers who are certified at the Master's level in the Barton System.

Over the years, my son has tried many programs like Lindamood-Bell, SRA Corrective Reading, SIPPS, Kumon Learning Center and at least 3 more that were not researched based for dyslexia.

The Barton System really has been a miracle.

As my son said recently, "It took us a long time to find the right reading program, Mom. But we finally found one that works!"

Step In Early

Parents wait too long. The best time to step in with the right type of help is in kindergarten and first grade. Here are the early warning signs parents should not ignore.

Watch Aiden, a second grader, explain what reading and writing are like for him. He has not yet gotten the right type of tutoring or intervention.

How To Catch It Early

Sadly, most teacher training colleges still do not offer any courses on dyslexia not even to people who get a Masters as a Reading Specialist or a Masters in Learning Disabilities.

That's why so many teachers (and other professionals) attend my Screening for Dyslexia seminar.

At that seminar, you will learn how to accurately identify and prove that students as young as mid-kindergarten "fit the dyslexia profile," how to help them, and so much more.

As one graduate shared:

The Screening for Dyslexia course, by Susan Barton, is not just a course on how to detect Dyslexia. It is so much more! You get extensive, in-depth, up-to-date information on the history and brain science, plus hands-on experience on how to apply it and screen for dyslexia. You also get tons of resources and ready-made documents that help you communicate and implement what you've learned with other professionals and parents.

Whether you are a Reading Specialist, Dyslexia Specialist, Educational Therapist, Special or Regular Ed teacher, or Tutor, Screening for Dyslexia will improve the way you look at, evaluate, and communicate with your students and parents.

Before I took the course, I had no idea how comprehensive it was, so I was baffled why it took six days to teach how to screen for dyslexia. It was well worth my time and money.

Retention

Some states have a policy of mandatory retention for students who cannot pass the reading portion of the state standards test.

But retention alone does not work and never has, as this parent shared.

For a much better solution, click here.

In most states, you can opt your child out of the state standards test but you must do it in advance, and in writing.
