We are #DyslexiaInspired by this #DyslexiaWarrior poster. Parents , advocates , tutors and others spend an enormous amount of time, money and energy trying to make sure that children with dyslexia and learning differences receive the services they need for school and life. We hope that someday we can invest that energy, time and life into being with our children to create meaningful lives that focus on well-being. Childhood is very short and we are not having the opportunity for full access to school or life when we are #dyslexiawarriors.We understand that dyslexia and related issues are not regularly taught at teaching colleges . We see that is changing. We understand that schools do not have the resources , time , budget or trained personnel to implement dyslexia early identification or intensive remediation. We see that is changing in small areas across the globe. We understand that many organizations are involved such as superintendents , principals , teachers, school special education providers , book publishing companies , lobbyists , literacy groups and parent groups. We hope they will work together to stop the current " wait to fail" situation.We know that children and families have been deeply impacted in their mind, body and heart by the inability to get the early identification, validation, required services and supports needed. We hope that society will see the value in all of humanity including the 1 in 5 with dyslexia , dysgraphia , dyscalculia and dyspraxia. The " dyslexia community" has grown together on a global scale because we know that #Literacyisfreedom and we need #literacyforhumanity.In 2017, people have become increasingly aware that dyslexia is much more than reading struggles. We know that this is a health issue that impacts the well-being of society. It is an economic issue that impacts the global economy. It is a civil rights issue that impacts society. We have known about dyslexia for 120 years. The www.carrollschool.org has celebrated 50 years of excellence in LBLD and dyslexia education in 2017. We have scientific, medical, and educational knowledge to take action to change. We have heard from the hearts and souls of millions of people around the world that their lives were significantly impacted by lack of dyslexia services even if they achieved what society views as " success." We also know about the " pipeline to prison , depression and lives filled with unhealthy stressors." One man recently said that he did learn " grit and resiliency" but he certainly would have preferred to learn those skills in a healthier way.We thank everyone who has joined us on #DyslexiaInspired this first year. We know that the people reading this page care. We must still find a way to have society make a shift to value all of humanity and take action to make changes so the #dyslexiawarrior is focusing on strengths and not on survival.

What people are saying…

“I was in a graduate level course that Dr. Hart facilitated. Dr. Hart was beyond helpful in assuring that my understanding and comprehension of the course’s content was well established. His class, Advanced Educational Psychology, allowed me to improve my teaching through my own learning.”

“Dr. Hart was very thorough and helpful when I had questions. I was skeptical of this course because I have always disliked Psychology courses….until this one! Thank you for making it interesting! (BTW I never comment on surveys! You definitely made a great impression on my learning experience! Thank you!)”

“I enjoyed this class so much. It gave me the opportunity to look at other viewpoints and the freedom to disagree with those viewpoints. I felt comfortable expressing my opinion and my hard work was rewarded. I wish that Dr. Hart was my professor throughout this entire program. “

I had the privilege to work with Dr. Hart for in a school setting and witnessed this very scenario. His clinical skills as a psychologist are the finest I have seen. His ability to explain the needs of children to the parents is extraordinary. He has those rare gifts of empathy and knowledge that he brings to each situation.
