I will never forget the worry and tears that were shed early on in my son's school career. Sometimes we would both cry after a night of homework, and he was only in the first grade. I kept asking the teachers,"Why can't my son read?" I never received an answer I was satisfied with. They told me not to worry, boys develop later and that he would be fine. He was finally diagnosed in third grade, and started seeing the school Reading Specialist. She saw him for 30 minutes twice a week. I could see slight improvements in his reading, but not significant enough gains. At this point I knew, I had to be is advocate and learn everything I could about dyslexia, and I did! I attended a Neuhaus Parent Night, that evening changed our lives forever. I enrolled in Basic Language Skills and decided I wanted to become a Dyslexia Specialist. I worked as an accountant before I became a stay-at-home mom, and I knew when the time came to re-enter the work force, I could no longer crunch numbers during the day. I had a new calling, to become a Dyslexia Specialist, and help children learn how to read. Today, I am a Reading Specialist at a wonderful private school and love my students and my job. My son changed my life, he is a true blessing, we no longer look at dyslexia as a negative in his life. We see it as a positive and he has many gifts to give to the world. I thank him and Neuhaus for giving him the gift of reading and for giving me a new passion in life the gives meaning to my everyday.

The Great!
