5 Top-Notch Information Resources for Dyslexia
Finding out your child is Dyslexic can be overwhelming. Believe me, I know! I am less than six months out from when we FINALLY found out that my daughter is Dyslexic. Sometimes you may feel alone as if you are stranded on an island or treading water in the middle of the ocean. You are not alone and you don't have to be a trailblazer! There are some wonderful resources available to parents. The following are five of my favorite resources!
- National Center for Learning Disabilities. This is an awesome resource! The site will give you customized advice and tools once you enter some information about your child. Click on the “Programs” tab and look for the For Parents link.
- The International Dyslexia Association also has a wealth of information. You can even find local chapters in your area for support.
- The Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity The tagline for their website is “Slow Reader, Out-of-the-Box Thinker.” The center offers a multitude of resources to provide support and information for parents.
- DyslexiaHelp at the University of Michigan This website even offers an opportunity to submit questions to Joanne Marttila Pierson, PhD, CCC-SLP and have them directly answered!
- The Dyslexic Advantage The mission of Dyslexic Advantage is to “promote the positive identity, community, and achievement of dyslexic people by focusing on their strengths.” I highly recommend reading their book, The Dyslexic Advantage. It provides a refreshing perspective of Dyslexia.
