Did you know there are approximately 10 million moms in America who have school-age children with dyslexia and about as many total American moms with dyslexia themselves? While it’s true there is a hereditary link, research by Dr. Fumiko Hoeft and Dr. Alberta Galaburda shows genetics (and gene discovery) is just the beginning, there are many layers and it will take a while longer to understand the genetic, environmental and complex biological mechanisms underlying reading acquisition and dyslexia.

The good news is that with early intervention and Structured Literacy approaches, moms and their children will reach their full potential and live healthy happy lives!

This week we will be sharing inspirational stories about everyday moms and their heroic commitment to providing the best instruction for their children.

Mom is a palindrome. Spelled forwards and backwards mom is a hero!
