How a dyslexic learned to help fellow struggling readers.
Over the years, as I developed what became No Fear Reading, I always took into account what I experienced as a non reader. I did everything I could to keep fear, embarrassment, and frustration out of the program. I made it as unlike the remedial programs I had been through as possible.
Labels, Labels, Labels
I was retained in third grade because I was unable to read and was diagnosed with Dyslexia, ADHD, and APD (Audio Processing Disorder). I did not fit in and was bullied as a result of being unable to do the simplest tasks, like work the combination on my school locker or recite the months of the year.
