Welcome to the Parent Grid

As a parent, it’s easy to feel alone and frustrated when struggling to find direction for your child with dyslexia.  The questions are confusing: Where do I go for help? Should I get a diagnosis? Should I consider a different school? What reading programs work best? Will my child ever read? Will my child be able to go to college?  You are not alone.   In this section, you’ll find resources and tools to help you and your child.​
