Parent Recipient October 2019
My name is Kathy and I am the proud mother of two incredible and busy teenagers. My husband and I have watched our son struggle with reading, writing and reading comprehension for most of his school years. Homework was one argument after another, which often ended with us telling him to try harder, and him throwing up his hands saying he was just "stupid" and "it was good enough". When we heard a diagnosis of Dyslexia and Dysgraphia as he entered grade 10, we were both angry and relieved; angry at a school system that let this go without assistance for years, relieved that we now knew what we were dealing with, that David now KNOWS he's not "stupid". Although I am optimistic about his learning future, I am a realist and am very aware that he doesn't have many years left before graduation.
I am very grateful to the Reading and Learning Clinic of Manitoba for including me in this course. Being a part of this program will provide me with the skills/knowledge to better help our son figure out how best he learns, advocate for what he needs at school to assist him, and ultimately, help him recognize his own potential, in order that he again embraces the idea that he can do anything he wants to do when "he grows up". Thank you Valdine.
Thank you again for the opportunity!
