#38 How parents new to dyslexia deal with information overwhelm and the shock of discovering under resourced teachers with Caron Trout

We go deep in this podcast about how parents new to dyslexia have to deal with the overwhelm of information. Then the shock of how under informed teachers are in educating dyslexics. The need to find outside help and community to find a way through the challenges to the solutions. With Caron Trout, a mother of a 14 year old, who discovered he was dyslexic and became one of the founding members of BVKid from Boulder, Colorado. Here are some snippets of what we covered. The Wake up call: “Another parent said ...‘Hey, I think your kid is really struggling …” The Assessment: “....I just wish we had sooner.” Dealing with the overwhelm: “...trying to trust which information is really good … “ Finding help outside: “...not having good information... breaks your trust as a parent. You've got to go outside…” Trusting under trained professionals: “I really trusted the professionals... Teachers were under-trained and not very well informed… that was also a shock” Confidentiality...

#36 Distinction at Oxford University with Dyslexia. Writing History of Art Essays! William Stone Part 1

When Williams dyslexia assessor advised his parents that he probably couldn’t manage state school due to his dyslexia his parents decided to do everything they could to keep him in mainstream. Hear the story of William Stone who got first class honours at the University of Edinburgh and recently got a Distinction for his Masters degree in Oxford University for Art History. He wants dyslexics to know they can definitely be academic if they want to. When he was diagnosed at 10 years. At 13, he was at the bottom of his 'sets' (Streamed classes) but something clicked at 14. It was certainly the intensive help and tutoring he was receiving. He shares how doing Karate could have had a positive effect on school too. He initially wanted to be involved in film after high school but his principal persuaded him to aim for Cambridge. He got rejected twice. Going, instead, to the University of Edinburgh and took Art History where he gained first class honours. He got his place at Oxbridge going...

#35 Autism: A mum determined to unlock her son so he can live an independent life. Stephanie Hill

What do you do when you discover your autistic child's gibberish means "Please be happy. I'm so sorry."? When a therapist records your 5-yr old child's gibberish and slows it down so much you can actually hear the words. What do you do when you realize your child is locked in their mind trying to communicate but can't? In this episode, we are going to make a little departure from our normal topic of dyslexia and talk about autism. Autism and dyslexia are different, but I just could not pass up the opportunity to speak with Stephanie and hear this story. As parents of dyslexics, although our children challenges are different, the challenges for us as parents can be similar. In this episode, I'd like to introduce you to Stephanie Hill, a single mom and former secondary school teacher of English and Spanish, who lives in Las Vegas Nevada. Stephanie is going to share her autism story, which is quite extreme. For example, her son has received 1000+ hours of tutoring over 12 years at a co...

#34 The education system and dyslexia: A view from the inside and outside. Chrissie Grant

And this episode Chrissie Grant shares how she began as a support worker and then branched out into becoming a private education mentor.

How seeing children get hooked on learning is like a drug for Chrissie and is a great reward Sharing her own experience of dyspraxia and how affects her wor...

If your Scottish and involved in Dyslexia, this is one to listen to! Also, if your involved in a dyslexia group, there is a lot to learn from how Dyslexia Scotland has grown over the last 50 yrs.
