We recently spoke with Tara Chapman and Sharon Marrello at The Written Word Center for Dyslexia and Learning in Wheaton, Illinois. They co-taught NoticeAbility’s Entrepreneurs & Innovators course for 2 hours a day, 5 days a week, for 2 weeks straight! this June with a group of middle school students with dyslexia - some from public schools, some from homeschools - and we wanted to share their story with you (and have you share it with your tutors!).Read More

Tamara Vreeken is co-founder of the dyslexia advocacy non-profit HOI Foundation in the Netherlands. As NoticeAbility international partners, HOI Foundation has translated our online Entrepreneurs & Innovators coursework –literally re-filmed the videos in Dutch - and also re-cast the course to fit the local needs. We celebrate all of our partners – those teaching in schools, our homeschoolers, and our independent tutoring partners- and look to continue expanding the number of young people helped by their efforts, no matter what language it’s in.
We caught up with Tamara recently and learned about the adaptations she and her partner Stephanie Raber have made to fit their local classrooms, the expectations of parents, and the roles the school and local government play in supporting struggling readers. All things we thought you might want to hear about, since as we’ve found, it’s different in different places, and NoticeAbility wants to help you adapt our courses to fit the needs you see where you are!
