Help Your Kids Overcome a Learning Disability with Tips I Learned From My Own Parents by Deeanne Gist

"Day after day I’d go home defeated, for I understood everything the teacher said, I just couldn’t keep the letters in my assignments from jumbling. Yet no matter how defeated I felt, every night my parents would tell me I wasn’t dumb. That I was smart—in some ways smarter than all the rest because I was passing, and I couldn’t even use the books to help me. I had to do it all through oral retention. I was so smart, they said, I could do anything I set my mind to."  Deeanne Gist
