Oxford Language Dictionary defines Confidence as:

"the state of feeling certain about the truth of something"
"a feeling of self-assurance arising from one's appreciation of one's own abilities or qualities."
When I think of our family's journey with dyslexia...I can't say this is usually the word that comes to mind. From struggles with homework, answering questions in class, or even just realizing that reading information is not always the easiest way to access information. The thing is, the lack of confidence in school ends up translating to lack of confidence in most other areas of life.
Our kids are truly brilliant...traditional eye reading is just challenging for kids with dyslexia. This lack of confidence is heartbreaking. The system that is supposed to edcuate and support them wants to help them succeed, but they often just don't know how to help and often doesn't understand why these bright children struggle.
As moms who have been part of the dyslexia journey, we know too well about the need to continually find ways to encourage and build our children's confidence...especially when they don't receive this encouragement from outside sources as often as is needed.
Dyslexia Together Box is a way to create fun ways to journey through a great book each month. As kids finish reading the book, whether it's ear reading or eye reading...their confidence is built page page, minute by minute.
Come join us and build your kids' confidence one great story at a time.
