Description

Is homeschooling with dyslexia a good idea? Can dyslexic students thrive, even if the parents aren’t specialists (or even certified teachers)?


Let’s be clear: absolutely, yes.


You can homeschool your dyslexic kids, and you’ll do a darn good job of it, too.


Today on the podcast, Marianne Sunderland from Homeschooling with Dyslexia is back to talk about the nitty gritty details of teaching children who learn differently.

In this episode, she gives us the low-down on teaching dyslexic kids at home, which resources to use, and when to ask for help.



In this episode, you’ll hear:



  • How to teach dyslexic children

  • Why Orton-Gillingham works to teach dyslexic kids how to read

  • Whether or not to get your child tested and officially diagnosed
