HOPE ACADEMY FOR DYSLEXICS
September 30, 2011

We parents at Hope Academy have a strikingly similar stories: my child is obviously capable (even smart), yet she is struggling. We parents sense something wrong long before a teacher says it aloud. We are given the news that our child struggles with reading then begin to search far and wide for diagnoses and "cures." We are told that we cannot get help until our child is 2 years behind but we are unwilling to wait that long.

What a relief it is to share my story with other parents and here that I am not alone! And that is just the beginning of the relief.

The students feel the burden lifted as well. My daughter, like many of the other incoming Hope students, dreaded school, suffered stomach aches and headaches, thought of herself as stupid when she was in traditional education. After 3 years at Hope, she has blossomed into a confident student who agrees with her teachers' assessments that she is intelligent. She has become an advocate for herself, often explaining to friends and extended family what dyslexia is and how it affects her. She willingly and proudly reads.

Our family is so thankful for Hope Academy.
