Struggling with reading and spelling?

If your child is struggling with reading and spelling, and you are starting to wonder if it will ever feel easy for them, then this is the place for you!

You Are Not Broken

Children and adults who have struggled with reading often think that there is something wrong with them and they feel a lot of shame. Reading is morally neutral: you are not a bad person if reading is hard.

Dyslexic Strengths

We all know that dyslexia affects reading and spelling. What we don’t know is that people with dyslexia are often creative, out-of-the-box thinkers with exceptional visual processing skills. Learning about your strengths is important! 

Everyone Can Learn

Reading should be part of everyone’s success story. Neurodivergent learners might need a more direct, focused, or fun approach. Everyone deserves to learn in a way that works with their brains! 

Learning Uphill is a place to learn about YOU…

…your skills, your priorities, and your family.

… your child’s strengths and stretches and unique learning approach.

… your growth and connection together


Let get our children reading following a fun, simple approach! Reading doesn’t have to be boring or difficult.
