"He can't have dyslexia; he's too smart!" Why do so many people believe that slow reading means lower intelligence?

Dyslexia does not discriminate based on intelligence level. Many gifted individuals have dyslexia yet excel in their fields. Even though those with dyslexia may be slow readers, they often possess fast and creative thinking abilities!


A big part of what we do is helping parents understand the needs of their students and how to be their advocate! Having a good support system can be the key to ensuring your student has the tools for success.

The Magical Thinking of ADHD Brains — and How It Drives Our Kids’ Lies 04/27/2023

Students with ADHD will often lie about homework, grades, or remembering what was expected of them. This is not because they are bad kids, the lying is just another dysfunctional coping mechanism in your child’s ADHD box of unhelpful tools.

ADDitude has a great article explaining why your child may struggle with telling the truth http://ow.ly/64N250NYpwo

The Magical Thinking of ADHD Brains — and How It Drives Our Kids’ Lies “My child with ADHD had just done something impulsive — something outside her control — and was unable to stop herself in time. She wished she hadn’t done it. And magical thinking allowed her to imagine that she hadn’t.”

For students who struggle with dysgraphia, writing can be torture.

Students with dysgraphia have a hard time writing neatly, properly spacing letters or words, copying down text, and getting their thoughts onto paper, often as a result of weak fine motor skills.

We speak with many parents who share their concerns about dysgraphia with us. We hope by sharing some of these concerns, other parents might recognize the warning signs in their students as well.


"Is it something I did?” Is a question that weighs heavily on some parents after their students have been diagnosed with a learning disability.

We get questions like this quite often. Learning disabilities can stem from genetics or other neurological causes, and it is not something that could have been avoided by “better parenting.

ADHD affects the brain’s executive function. That means it’s harder for individuals to process information and make choices based on that information. This is how ADHD paralysis occurs – when you can’t decide what to do or where to start, you can’t take action.
