Stacy Hardin is the owner of Hardin Dyslexia Services. She became passionate about helping those with dyslexia after her own son’s struggles with dyslexia. Unfortunately, schools in Illinois do not have the correct services to help those children who are dyslexic. She received her Master’s degree in Education in 2014, and her Orton Gillingham dyslexia certification in 2015. She has been actively tutoring dyslexic children since the summer of 2014. However, since 2010, she has been providing research and referral information for parents of dyslexic children.
There are many misconceptions about what dyslexia is – the main one being that dyslexia is about reversing letters or writing backwards. While this can be a symptom of dyslexia, it does not occur in most people who are dyslexic. Because of the seriousness of dyslexia, early detection is very important so that our children can begin learning to read using a multisensory program that can help them catch up with their peers before any long term damage to their self esteem and academic career is done.
Based on research by the National Institute of Health, approximately 20% of the entire world’s population has a form of dyslexia, varying in degrees from mild to moderate to severe to profound. Although children with mild forms of dyslexia can typically be sustained in a traditional curriculum classroom, this does not mean that they will flourish in them. It is imperative that whatever degree of dyslexia a child has, they get extra help so that they can prosper in their academic journey.
If you suspect that your child may be dyslexic, please contact us so that we can help you in your next step.
