During my teaching years I never heard the word “dyslexia.” Students were labeled- struggling, slow, falling through the cracks, not working up to potential, disruptive, etc. The truth is that they were ashamed, embarrassed, and scared because they could not read, or could read only with great difficulty. Barton tutoring works! I have seen children from K-8 grow in self-esteem, pride, and excitement about reading through my and others’ tutoring. Every child has the right to read!
