As a parent, I struggle daily to ensure my daughter gets the help she needs to learn and be happy at school. Some days I succeed, other days are a miserable failure. It hurts to see her suffer needlessly.
Me must make cha Keith Gray of Dyslexia Canada so aptly put it: we are going to make change.
And we are! My friends at Decoding Dyslexia Ontario have already started out the new year with a wonderful “Face of Dyslexia Canada” video to increase awareness about dyslexia in Canada. As they posted on their Facebook page:
“We need the country to know about our bright and incredibly capable young people with dyslexia who deserve an education appropriate to their learning needs.
Please share widely. Share with your schools, with your local school trustees, with your MPPs and anyone else who will listen and support the changes necessary so that all children in Canada can learn to read in our schools.”
Take a look, and share!
