The Magic of a Language-Rich Lifestyle for Kids with Dyslexia & Dysgraphia
Children who struggle with the mechanics of written language because of dyslexia and dysgraphia do not need to be barred from the thrill of authorship—the sense of themselves as writers! Today’s technological landscape makes it possible in brand new ways to empower our kids to be the writers they deserve to be! This session will offer practical tips and ideas for how to bring writing to life for kids who struggle with reading and handwriting.
I have five kids (now adults) and homeschooled them for seventeen years. My professional writing credentials include ghostwriting, freelance writing, editing books, operating as the senior editor for a quarterly industry publication, and writing a weekly column for United Press International.
I’ve written Brave Writer’s Home Study Courses and have written or supervised the writing of all other Brave Writer products.
My homeschool credentials include ten years teaching theater and writing for our Cincinnati homeschool co-op of 300 students, four year membership in the steering committee of a local Charlotte Mason organization, speaking in the US, UK, and Canada at homeschool conventions, and hosting Brave Writer events all over the United States. Brave Writer opened its doors in January 2000 and has taught tens of thousands of families from all around the globe. Today, I live in Cincinnati, Ohio where I enjoy running, PG Tips tea every morning, and kayaking.
