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.
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.
I am a tutor, educator and former homeschool parent
I am Grace Harrison. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest of Canada with my three wonderful children.
I have more than a decade of experience in education and youth programs. I am an Associate Orton-Gillingham Tutor and have received additional training in Speech-to-Print methodology.
Learning Uphill began because I found it so hard to find fun, engaging and simple resources to help my children become successful readers.
