Welcome Fellow Parent!
Welcome to our course Building A Dyslexia Parent Group - Step 7. Please make sure to download the WORKBOOK link on our website and open to Step 1. This guide will help you navigate this lecture.
A New Beginning
This step is incredibly important because you are now creating the district you want for your children as well as for those children whose names you will never know. Do this in the spirit of Emily Hanford’s podcast where she states, ‘When we know better, we do better’. Most teachers never learned about dyslexia or the laws protecting children with dyslexia. They never learned about it in their studies at their colleges of education, which is our next fight. Now that your district is committing to move forward with the science, let it all go and come together for the children! Roll up your sleeves and stand shoulder to shoulder with your district.
Step 7 - Featured Guest Speakers:

Step 7 - Quotes:
“Hard War, Easy Peace.”
~ Kareem Weaver, Head of the Oakland, California NAACP Education Committee and FULCRUM
“In sympathy with the teachers who have to discover all of this empowering information at a late stage in their careers they almost always say I am so grateful for this information. Why didn’t anybody teach me this before.”
~ Dr. Louisa Moats Ed. D., National Expert in Literacy & Teacher Practice Standards
