Who are behind “Crazy Good Readers”
Several years ago I started out on an interesting and fulfilling journey. I discovered that one of my children has dyslexia. Several years later it turns out another one of my sons has the same disorder. As a homeschool mom, I had already begun educating myself on how to educate my struggling children, I was confident that we could turn dyslexia into maxlexia (my husband’s term). My older son had tutoring for several years and I decided to tutor right along with him by listening in and then using the same strategies at home. As time went by I began to come up with my own tools, games, activities, etc.
Finally, it became clear that I should make some of the best ones available to other parents and teachers who were educating children with dyslexia, Auditory Processing Disorder (APD) or other learning issues. I began writing simple picture books that drilled specific sounds, rhymes and areas of grammar. Soon I had two beautifully illustrated picture books and the foundations for a myriad of support materials in the works. This blog is to keep you receiving tips, ideas, videos and more because…
If you are like me you are always looking for new ways to improve your child’s reading ability and love for the written word.
Enter my good friend Jennifer Miller
Jennifer had hit some turning points in her life. Her daughter had grown up and headed off to college. Her father had begun to need more intentional care. And she had returned to college to get her reading certification, but soon realized that there may be a better way for her to help children with learning differences. She could help create materials that would provide parents and teachers cost effective tools with which to help their children right from their own home. She is still considering finishing up her reading specialist degree or getting Orton-Gillingham certified. You will most likely get to follow her process and journey as she moves forward.
But you can also benefit from what Jennifer brings to Crazy Good Readers right now!
