What Parents Can Learn from Adults with Reading Challenges

Throughout the stories we've heard from adults with dyslexia and other reading challenges, one common thread runs: They are extremely grateful to the one adult who believed in them when they were children.

That belief could have taken several forms. The adult might have been a teacher who set aside special one-on-one time to work with the child. It might have been someone who simply said "you will succeed." As much as parents would like to be that adult, it doesn't always work that way. Not because of a failure of parenting, but because children, like the rest of us, embrace the offer of help when they are ready. We just have to keep offering.

Another common thread we hear is: Back in those days, there weren't any schools like Windy Row; people didn't know about dyslexia.

In many areas of the country that was true. In fact, in some areas, it is still true. That's why Windy Row Learning Center takes its mission so seriously. We are the only organization in the Monadnock Region dedicated to helping children with reading challenges like dyslexia. We're here to add our voice to yours and to help your child succeed. info [at] windyrow.org (Contact) us today.
