A FREE HEAV-Sponsored Seminar

Wednesday, October 25

Many homeschool parents are perplexed by the difficulty they sometimes find in teaching their child to read. You may have read widely to your child from a young age and provided consistent and appropriate instruction. And yet despite your best efforts, your student still seems unable to read accurately and fluently.

For many of these children, difficulty with reading is caused by dyslexia. Dyslexia can also make the process of learning to spell and compose very difficult. But with the right instruction and support, dyslexic students can find success in each of these language-based disciplines.

Experienced Speaker

Kathy Kamibayashi, former homeschool mom of two adult children, is a private dyslexia tutor who has successfully taught dyslexic students to read and spell. She also serves as a consultant to parents seeking to provide an appropriate and effective education for their dyslexic children. Kathy is a native Californian and earned her degree from the University of California at Davis.

Susan Schaeffer Macaulay says in her book, For the Children’s Sake, “Education isn’t as hard as all the experts make out.” Kathy believes this rings true for teaching dyslexic students as well.

  1. Thank you for all the helpful information.
    I share many items with parents of homeschoolers, as well as, public and private school students.
    It is an honor and a pleasure to advocate for all the Home School Community, but especially in Virginia.
