You can help your child ‘overcome dyslexia and even overcome his learning struggles.

Even though I’m not a teacher, I helped my boys overcome dyslexia, ADHD, dysgraphia and other LDs. Other parents have helped their kids too. YOU can do it too with the right information and programs!

If you need to know how to help your child overcome dyslexia, ADHD, Aspergers, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, or another learning disability, you just need to know where to start!

Your First 3 Steps toward creating your child’s success story:

To help your child:

3) In order to know exactly how To help your child overcome Dyslexia, ADHD, Aspergers, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia or other Learning Disabilities, get a comprehensive evaluation from a highly qualified neuropsychologist.

You need to KNOW the cognitive processes that affect your child in order to improve your child’s learning. You need to KNOW if your child has working memory problems, perception problems, processing problems, etc.

If you don’t know exactly what your child’s issues are, you’ll have a hard time figuring out how to overcome dyslexia, ADHD, Aspergers, dysgraphia, dyscalculia or any other learning disability. There are also varying degrees of dyslexia, ADHD, etc.

There are also other brain processes involved in ADHD, Aspergers, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, or other LDs. If you know YOUR child’s individual needs, you can create a better program to overcome your child’s learning disabilities. 😉

  1. Hi. I’m just passing by to say that is really amazing the support and hope all these information gives to the parents and their kids. All parent wants what’s best for their kids and want them to be fine, and I have to say that this website is like a fresh breath for those whose struggling to do what’s best for their child every single day. So, thank you!

    • THANK YOU!! 😀 I’ve put a lot of work into the site to make it a good resource to the best of my abilities. I truly appreciate your comment of support. It makes my day! 😀

  2. I have a fourteen year old who is enrolled in a charter home school program. Who has done really well until this year. He was diagnosed with severe narcolepsy. School has become a major struggle for him he cannot keep up with his daily lessons. He now has trouble remembering formulas, and comprehension in writing, science and social studies. He was and A student. But he is so tired he cannot keep up with his work. We are now working 7 days just to barely maintain. Is there any kind of help for this type of disability? Thank you


    • HI Lynne, since Narcolepsy is a medical issues, I would think that managing the tendency to fall sleep itself would be the biggest help. Since I’m not a medical professional, I can’t really address what the treatment and coping options would be for narcolepsy. My personal feeling is that your child would return to being an A student if he was no longer so tired. I’m sorry I can’t be of more assistance with this matter. HUGS!

  3. Hi, I wonder if anyone has a suggestion for teaching family tree/relations and how they connect for a child with a language processing difficulty, he struggles to connect information for understanding?


  4. Hi Sandi,

    I’ve been homeschooling my children for the past 10 years, with my oldest daughter graduating and being accepted at a university through our homeschool curriculum.

    I would like you and your homeschooling supporters to know how refreshing and encouraging it is to receive any positive comments about homeschooling. Just today I noticed your book ‘Overcome Your Fear of Homeschooling with Insider Information’. The insider information seems to be that homeschooling can be done and there is someone out there who cares to encourage parents to give their children the very best they are willing to offer.

    Thank you for addressing the topic of unsupportive family members. I those who question the validity of homeschooling. Your positive words and diligence through writing have been a blessing to me. I truly appreciate the time you took to place your thoughts into words.

    • Congratulations to you and your daughter, Yolonda!! It’s an AWESOME accomplishment to homeschool for a decade, graduate your child, and to have your journey validated through acceptance in college. It truly is a blessing beyond measure. 😀

      I truly appreciate your encouragement for my writing too. I deeply appreciate your support and supportive comments.

  5. My just turning 11 year old son had ADHD, Disgraphia, and Anxiety. We are starting homeschool with a Charter School. He struggles in both hand writing and math. The CT is not helpful in picking a curriculum for him. And I’m overwhelmed! He has an IEP in place.
    Thank you,

    • Charter Schools are still part of the public school system. Thus, they often aren’t overly flexible about their curriculum choices, unless the charter school was designed to be flexible from the beginning. While your son is in the public school system, the most important thing you can do is to train yourself as a strong advocate. I HIGHLY recommend “From Emotions to Advocacy” to learn how to get a good IEP in place and to get the school to follow the IEP.

  6. Hello, I have a daughter, 6 with Down syndrome. She is delayed in all areas of development. Are there any specific education programmes that you would recommend? Thank you, Chi xxx

    • There are a lot of great programs out there. It’s impossible to recommend the right program for any individual child when I don’t know the child and don’t have comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation information for the child. What I can suggest is that you consider how your child likes to learn, then look for programs that match her learning style.

  7. Hello. I am debating whether or not to take the 30-hour Orton Gillingham course this summer. I’m a SPED Teacher working mainly with 4th and 5th graders who have qualified for special education services under the SLD label (mainly). I am trying to decide whether the OG course is more worthwhile and applicable than the Wilson course. Do you have an opinion, recommendation, insight, etc., into these 2 workshops? Thanks so much!

    • HI Kelly, I would HIGHLY recommend taking the Orton Gillingham class! Since the Orton-Gillingham is a methodology that helps students with SLDs learn content material, it is actually applicable to teaching any core concept or any Orton-Gillingham based program. Since Wilson is an Orton-Gillingham based program, the Orton-Gillingham course will help you teach Wilson or ANY reading program more effectively. The Wilson training will be specific to the Wilson program, so it would be less adaptable to other areas of teaching. I completed a 56-hour Orton-Gillingham course through Rotter and Becker Educational Consultants, and that was one of the best training investments I have ever made. 😉 Hope that helps and Warm Wishes for great success with your students! 😀

  8. Hi, I am a new to homeschooling. I have a 17 year old that is still in the 9th grade because she has ADHD, dyscalculia, She is also bipolar and Has OCD and anxiety behavior. she has an IEP but the school would not listen and after fighting with them I have taken her out to home school her. She Hates school and was not doing anything because they totally turned her off to school. She has trouble with math and they kept giving her algebra every year because she flunked it. They could have given her other classes and at the last IEP they were finally going to change her classes but then she missed half a semester because of illness. Our school has 4 courses the first semester. and 4 other courses the next semester. She has passed the EOC for English II. And has a few more credits in other subjects. don’t know where to begin and I sure don’t want to start with algebra. I cannot afford a private school and I looked at public school and that is just the same as regular school just doing it at home. Do you have a favorite website or can you give me some suggestions. Thanks for listening to me.

  9. help my son should be a junior but has dylslexia,delayed processing from it/dycalucus/and all that,plus adhd ans depression,We want his to find school material on different grade levels he can understand and help him getall he needs to graduate high school,oh and his short term memory is very bad. Is there any thing out there/

    • HI Nancy, There are ALL KINDS of programs out there for virtually any disability, and specifically programs that help with your child’s types of issues. However, you won’t find a ready-made program that will meet all of your son’s needs in a single package. You can put together an effective program for your son by focusing on each of his disability needs. For dyslexia, get a dyslexia remediation program. For the processing speed issues and poor short-term memory, you can get a cognitive enhancement program. For dyscalculia, you can get effective math programs. Otherwise, for subjects like literature, science, social studies, etc. you can get video-based teaching programs or use audiobooks. Since kids diagnosed with learning disabilities are ABLE to learn, there is a way around any learning disability! It just takes research and picking programs that match your son’s specific needs. 😉

  10. I am searching for a consumer math that would better prepare my dyslexic senior for post-high school life. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your time.

    • We used AGS Consumer Math for our consumer math program. AGS is a line of textbooks that is written at a lower reading level, but the books contain content suitable for high school students.

      We also used Dave Ramseys Financial Peace University. My guys loved Dave Ramsey’s DVDs. I actually think it’s a great option.

      • Hi,

        Thanks in advance
