Is your child struggling with reading and spelling?

Do you want to better understand dyslexia?

Learn the terms now, so you can understand important conversations later.

The way students with learning differences need to be taught can be quite different than the way many schools typically teach. Understanding the strategies that work best can make you a better advocate for a child with dyslexia.

If your child is already receiving great instruction, this course will help you understand the strategies they use so you can help with reading and spelling tasks at home.

Who is this course for?
  • Those starting their dyslexia journey
  • Parents who want to help their children succeed
  • General education teachers who want to understand their dyslexic students
  • Tutors who want to learn new strategies

This course is NOT for those who already have a strong understanding of dyslexia and IDA-accredited reading programs.

"Such a fabulous resource and many "ah ha" moments!"

-Mom of a 4th Grader with Dyslexia

“Lisa Parnello is nothing short of amazing! My dyslexic child could not read at all when she started working with Lisa after first grade and the situation felt hopeless. She is now testing above grade level in reading and it is all due to Lisa’s patience, expertise, and knack for getting the best out of kids. We could not recommend Lisa more highly.”
