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.
We all know that dyslexia affects reading and spelling, but few people know that dyslexia is a brain difference and not just a learning disability. 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. Research shows that the majority of reading instruction in North America is taught using an outdated model. We know what people need for reading, and now we need to make it happen.
Learning Uphill is a place to learn about YOU…
…your skills, your time, your family, your child’s strengths and stretches, and how you can bring all these things together to support your child and encourage their success.
The responsibilities of being an adult and a parent can be challenging enough. If you have a child with dyslexia or a suspected learning disorder, it’s even more difficult. If you feel you need to take on the role of educator or tutor, you might be feeling overwhelmed.
I am a tutor, educator and homeschool parent
I am Grace Harrison. I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest of Canada. I have three beautiful children and more than a decade of experience in education and youth programs. I am also an adult with dyslexia and ADHD. Learning Uphill began because I found it so hard to find resources to help myself, and almost no resources to help my children with learning differences.
