  1. What is dyslexia?
  2. Oklahoma passed the Dyslexia screening bill that is now in effect this year. What was this bill designed for? What doesn't it do?

Interventions - 

You're not broken, but you're not amazing yet. So we play to her strengths and manage around her weaknesses. I try to leave space for her to make her mistakes and to model what it is I am doing. 

This is soooo far from what I thought I would be doing at her age.

  • Presenting with visuals
  • Video production
  • Why don’t you show me

I didn’t know or find out I was dyslexic until I was in my late 30’s. But I knew my weaknesses long before then. I am a doer. I will get my hands dirty and do all kinds of heavy lifting, but I also found that surrounding myself with people that were smarter than me in the areas I was weak was necessary.
