When my son was diagnosed with dyslexia I didn't know how best to help him. There's an overwhelming amount of information out there, but I just wanted a simple, accurate guide that would give me clear guidance - I wanted to know what I could do to support Jake both at home and at school. The course provided that ... and much more! It was especially helpful to be able to talk through all the options with my coach and choose those strategies that were going to be of most help to Jake. Now I feel confident that I'm offering the best support I can, and I have the knowledge I need to do that in the future too.
