Proud Mommy Moment

I have to share a PROUD MOMMY moment !!
by Frankie Humble

My 8 year old was diagnosed with Dyslexia and Dysgraphia right before he turned 7. He struggled with reading every day.

One day he came home and began to sob. He told me that "sometimes he gets mad at God for giving him a stupid brain." He said, "I know the right answer in my brain but the wrong word comes out of my mouth!"

As a teacher, that was hard to hear. As a mom, it was devastating. I had no clue how to help him.

That night, after I dropped him off at karate, I drove straight to a tutoring clinic that specializes in dyslexia. (They use the Barton Reading & Spelling System.) I walked in and proceeded to cry like a fool. The tutor said, "It's okay. We will help him."

Fast forward 15 months. My son is reading above grade level, he LOVES to read, and his test scores are out of this world.

I am so proud of him. He is the most dedicated kid I have ever seen. He never complains about tutoring twice a week (even in the summer), and he works hard for the entire 60 minutes each time.

My son is my HERO....I am not sure I could have overcome the obstacle of dyslexia. His dedication and determination AMAZES me.

Never Say "Just A Mom"

Never say you are "just a mom."

A mom is the most important person in a child's life especially when that child has dyslexia.

Disabled or Different Abilities
shared by Lynda Bruni

This is a Facebook post my daughter made a couple of days ago. Yes, I'm proud of her, but it is the message that speaks volumes! She is a freshman at James Madison University.

Dear World:

In a file somewhere, it is written about me that I have a "learning disability". In that file it says that I am "disabled".

Educators have looked at that file. They have read the words "disabled" and have comprehended that to mean "incapable". They saw me as broken and not able to be intelligent because of my "disability".

I too have seen that file, but all I saw in that one false word was ABLE. "Disabilities" just means different ABILITIES.

Some perceive me as incapable but my own perception of myself has always been that I am normal. All my life has been lived with this "disability" and that is my normal.

I know a one handed boy who plays the guitar, I have seen a person in a wheelchair dance to the beat of her favorite song and I have written this entire thing while being dyslexic.

What I am trying to convey to you is this: the only time you are truly disabled is when you let the adversities you face hold you back. But if you don't let them hold you back, then you will never be disabled.

I do not have a "disability" but merely a different way of learning.

Different does not mean bad just because it isn't how the majority of people do something.

To understand how much heartache and struggle could be avoided if schools screened for dyslexia, watch this short video.

Summer SeminarEvery 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 that course become passionate dyslexia specialists who will change the future of so many children in their community.

To see how much change two teachers who attended were able to make in their district, click here.

One graduate shared:

If you attend just one training on dyslexia, make it this one. Susan is the best in the field!

Another said:

I have never attended such a well-organized, information-packed, and practical seminar in my career. I learned more useful information about dyslexia in these 6 days than in my entire Master's program.

Their Skills Will Improve

Once people with dyslexia get the right type of tutoring, their skills will improve, even after years of making no progress as this parent shared:

After years of little progress, and no progress at all last year, I convinced the school to start using the Barton System with my daughter.

She's in 4th grade and now gets Barton tutoring twice a week before school.

My daughter has shown amazing gains using the Barton System.  She is now reading close to grade level after only 7 months of tutoring.  It's been her best year ever.

Thank you, thank you !

And as this special education teacher shared:

I have been a Special Ed teacher for 20+ years.  I am thrilled with your Barton Reading & Spelling System, which I have been using for the past few years.  It is exactly what I had been looking for and what I felt was missing for our young kids.

I always used pieces of different programs in order to help my students, but your program includes the strong base and progression needed.  I am using it for my lowest readers in special education. They have all grown so confident.

Thank you so much for this fabulous program.

And as this homeschool parent shared:

The day I started to homeschool my 2 dyslexic children, we made this video for our own personal benefit. I had watched and loved "Sophia's Fight Song," and I wanted my children to have a video like that of their own.

I have tutored them myself using the Barton System, one-on- one, 4 times a week. The progress they have made in just 7 months is truly astonishing! So today, we made a second video.

Parents are protesting school policies that allow teachers and administrators to withhold recess to punish student misbehavior.

Common infractions include tardiness, acting out in class and failure to complete homework everyday childhood behaviors that result in numerous children having to go without recess on any given day.

A Texas school started giving children four recess breaks a day, and teachers and parents say the results have been wonderful.
