"Switch our mindset before we start, and then we'll change the way we teach." - Lois Letchford

Reading specialist Lois Letchford is passionate about teaching.   She is the author of the book "Reversed: A Memoir and Literacy Problem Solver," and she's also the co-founder of "Teaching Students with Dyslexia Writing and Reading Program." Lois has a deep understanding of what it takes to help kids with learning disabilities because she has experienced it from both the perspective of the student and the teacher.  It began with her personal experience of having dyslexia and trying to learn to read, and then years later, when the "specialists" were unable to help her dyslexic son learn to read, she knew that it was up to her to find a method that worked.  And she did.  Lois's son, who failed the first grade and was labeled the "worst child ever," not only successfully learned to read, but also grew to love learning and went on to earn a PhD from Oxford University.
