Learning To Read And Homeschooling A Child With Dyslexia

Learning To Read

Or rather, teaching my son to read, is the single most difficult aspect of my life as a homeschooling mom.

My son is profoundly dyslexic and twelve years old. This is our eighth year homeschooling together.

Every single school year, our number one concern, priority, stress and challenge?

Learning to read, without a doubt.

I try to keep it in perspective. I know that my son is so much more than his reading ability. I know that he is wicked smart and capable. I know that he is making progress and is finally able to read basic signs and the titles of YouTube videos.

But eight years is a long time to practice the Top 200 sight words – for both of us.

The truth is, sometimes we just need to be reminded.

What we are doing matters.

Our children are learning, at a pace and in an environment that makes the most sense for their needs.

We are not failing them.
