Wait, Wasn’t Reading Supposed to be Fun?

A FREE HEAV-Sponsored Seminar

Saturday, April 7

October’s “Reading Difficulties” seminar was a great success! If you missed it, or if you want to review the subject matter again, be sure to join us for the spring seminar!

As parents, we can’t wait to share the joy of reading with our kids. But what happens when, despite our best efforts, our kids can’t seem to master reading and spelling?

In many cases, difficulty learning to read and spell is caused by dyslexia. But that’s not the end of the story. With the right instruction, children can overcome the challenges associated with dyslexia.

This workshop will explore methods for teaching reading — and love of reading — to students with dyslexia. We’ll focus on questions like:

  • What is dyslexia?
  • What are the characteristics and warnings signs?
  • Can I homeschool my dyslexic child? What are the benefits?
  • Are there any curricula for teaching dyslexic children to read?
  • What should I do if my middle schooler or high schooler still isn’t reading effectively?

Experienced Speaker

Kathy Kamibayashi is a former homeschool mom and a dyslexia specialist. She serves as a consultant to parents who are seeking to provide a rich, effective education to their dyslexic children. A native Californian, Kathy earned her degree from the University of California at Davis.

    Is it possible for you to have this seminar in a live webcast or recorded for viewing afterwards? I live four hours away and it would be difficult to travel 8 hours round trip for a two hour class. However, we have recently discovered our 8 yr old son is dyslexic and I am at a loss as to how to teach him!

    Erika, we absolutely understand the difficulty with travel. I’m trying to find someone who would be able to record it on Saturday, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen for this one. It is definitely in the plans, though!
