The Reading Academy Membership for Parents
The Reading Academy Membership for Parents is a community of parents that are looking for a place that is not so overwhelming and shares information about dyslexia. Each month we host a live webinar, specifically for parent members, offering our expertise, answering questions and sharing our experiences working with students with dyslexia.
Exclusive content is available to all our members: information about assistive technology, study skill templates to use at home with your child, suggestions for accommodations that may help your child in the classroom and more!
Our Parent members also have access to our private Facebook group, where you can learn from others, share your experiences and interact with other parents, like you.
