Third Grade Student with Dyslexia

The day Mario‘s parents chose to enroll in my course, they were completely at the end of their rope. Their son Mario was in third grade and he was reading at a first grade level. The school said that he was developing just fine, he was making progress, and he was just, “a little bit slower” than his classmates. His teacher insisted that Mario needed more time to close the gap between his grade level and his reading level, and that by the end of the year everything would just, “work itself out.”


The problem was, the parents, Angela and Rick, had two other children who had no learning issues. When it came to their third child having difficulty, they knew that something seemed to be very different. This is what I call a red flag moment, and you never want to ignore a red flag. Instead of waiting for third grade to pass by to see if Mario would close the gap in his learning the parents decided to make an appointment with me.

For the rest of the story, buy my book on Amazon!
