Friday Findings: Dyslexia Links

In keeping with October being National Dyslexia Awareness Month, this week I'm linking to some recent dyslexia posts and resources I've found...

6 Facts Every Parent of a Dyslexic Child Should Know gives current, no nonsense information regarding the facts of dyslexia.

Marianne Sunderland's Dyslexia FAQ's is an excellent resource for homeschooling kiddos with dyslexia!  She is the homeschooling mom of 8 children, 7 of which, are dyslexic.  Sunderland blogs at Abundant Life and Homeschooling with Dyslexia.

My Audio School is an amazing website with links to books on audio!  There is even a section with Ambleside Online books.

Our son is currently receiving tutoring at a local Children's Dyslexia Center.  He is nearly finished with the program and it has been a real gift.  Children's Dyslexia Centers, Inc., is a Scottish Rites Charity.  If you have a child with dyslexia, I would encourage you to look for a center in your area.

If you suspect your child is dyslexic or for more information on dyslexia, check out Dyslexia 101 or just click the "Dyslexia" tab at the top for a variety of posts.

Ruben is still into K'nex and Legos...

He really loves to build and create things!  Last spring, he designed a fire pit for me.  We roasted marshmallows and cooked over the open fire all summer.  It was great!

Dyslexia is not a disease.  It's a neurological learning difference.  It's not a death sentence.  However, there is no cure.  People with dyslexia are not stupid or lazy.  Instead, they are often hard working and with the right help, they can learn how to overcome their dyslexia.  Dyslexia is a gift.


  1. Amen...I agree it is a gift! :) We are making great strides with Barton, and I am delighted Ruben is making strides with his tutoring! :)

  2. Oh glad to hear you're successfully working through Barton.

    God's Blessings,

    1. Thank you! We are going slow due to moving across the world, and then travelling back to the States for several weeks. But progress is progress! God bless you too!
