In this episode:
Could you or your child be a “Stealth Dyslexic”? In this episode, Dr. Dan talks about dyslexia from a professional and personal perspective. His children have dyslexia, and he didn’t find out that he also had dyslexia until after his children were assessed. Learn about how to socially and emotionally support the dyslexic thinker, and how to navigate accommodating vs enabling.
“I need you to do this for 5-minutes on your own, I’ll be right here, and then I will help you. Kids just get used to us doing things for them and that ends up being a disservice to them as they get older…” – Dr. Dan Peters
