It's easy to get caught up in all the noise in the dyslexic space - so many people with so many solutions.
We know. We've tried them.
And they didn't work - for us.
Not because they're wrong. In fact, they do work for some kids.
But not for our son. Not where he was in his head-space and heart-space at the time.
Telling him he needed to be positive, to find his inner strength, to accept failure as a win?
It was like putting a bandaid on a torn artery. It might stop the blood flow for a short time, but eventually it fails.
These fixes couldn't last long enough to make lasting and meaningful change.
Our son wasn't open to listening. He was already convinced he was a lost cause. He'd given up trying.
