For some moms back to school means in addition to teaching our children we have one or more that will need special help.AND JESUS LOOKING UPON THEM SAITH, “WITH MEN IT IS IMPOSSIBLE, BUT NOT WITH GOD: FOR WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE.” MARK 10:27

For some moms back to school means in addition to teaching our children we have one or more that will need special help.

One of our daughters is dyslectic and I have a quite a few of the tendencies too. We find it helpful not to take ourselves too seriously and have learned to joke about our transposed words, letters, and numbers. For a long time she said she was lysdexic .  And we said, You certainly are!”

While being dyslectic is a serious disorder, you can learn to be productive and be able to do what you need to do to live well.

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.” Psalm 139:14

My daughter is also a freelance graphic designer and does beautiful work – all with dyslexia. She made the graphic for this article.

Numbers are a different thing. Balancing a check book can be quite a challenge. Transposed number don’t balance very well. But given a quiet place, taking enough time, and carefully checking the numbers, I do manage to balance ours every month.

While you or your child’s symptom may be different and more severe than ours, there is a lot of information from the Accessible Web Initiative  now on their new website Dopa. While some things may take you more time than others, and be more difficult for you than others, it is still very doable.


I also want to post a disclaimer here. I know that Dyslexia is a serious learning disability. We too had our days with tears and struggles over the difficulty of learning, or relearning something every day. This article is not meant to deny that, but to give you moms who are struggling with this a reason to hope.
