Elizabeth is the mother of three children whose school experiences include many years of homeschooling, plus some public and private school. Her most recent foray back into homeschooling is a result of finding the best educational fit for her dyslexic-learner middle child. Elizabeth and her family live in Midlothian and love to learn and play in the Greater Richmond Region.
How Dyslexia Helped a Burned-Out Homeschool Mom Love Homeschooling Again
Saturday, Session 4, 2:45–3:45 p.m.
Using my family’s personal story as a foundation for discussion, we will explore recognizing the signs of dyslexia, dealing with struggles in school, testing, and deciding on next steps. We will address remediation by using a multi-sensory language learning program (or tutor) and using accommodations in math, history, science, and art in your own homeschool. Finally, we will look ahead: teaching dyslexic students self-advocacy for life skills that will take them through the schooling years and beyond.
