My son was officially diagnosed with dyslexia when he was 5. He was not reading, writing and he recognized that something was wrong and that he was different from the other children. He quickly compensated for his difference by becoming the class clown and turning into "Mr. Personality" even though inside his ego was damaged and his self-esteem was slowly disintegrating. He went from a happy child to an unhappy, sad child who no longer wanted to go to school. We were lucky that he was diagnosed early and as soon as we enrolled him at New Way Academy, he quickly transformed into a happy, fully-engaged, child who LOVES going to school each and every day. Fast forward and one+ years later, he continues to progress and love every day at school. He is now reading, writing and doing great in math. He loves that the school is small enough to feel comfortable, but just large enough for him to feel a part of a bigger, robust school with a traditional campus culture. The teachers and staff at New Way are remarkable and unsurpassed and we couldn't be happier. We plan for our son to continue at New Way for a very, very long time.
