What does NoticeAbility offer parents?

What does NoticeAbility offer parents?

We love to hear from parents of young people with dyslexia. We hear that as a parents finding the right resources is frustrating: it takes lots of time, there are lots of mixed messages, there’s not one single source of validated information about what works and how to get the help you and your family needs. We are working to find ways to fill that need, but in the meantime, here’s one message to one mom who reached out to us that you might find useful! Please reach out to us via the contact us form below with your question or story!

Message to NoticeAbility: Hi! I am the parent of an amazing dyslexic daughter (age 9). I recently came across your site after seeing the TED talk given by Dean Bragonier. Your message really resonates…

Adapting NoticeAbility courses for dyslexic students around the world: Holland!

Adapting NoticeAbility courses for dyslexic students around the world: Holland!

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!
NoticeAbility: Tell us about you, and why…
