www.dyslexiastuff.com I help parents and children who are affected by dyslexia. I'm Linda Colasanti, an everyday mom who has spent over a decade remediating students with dyslexia. It started with my oldest, who was misdiagnosed THREE TIMES before getting a correct identification. Being completely shocked that THREE highly reputable child psychologists misdiagnosed my son, I became trained in three different Orton-Gillingham curriculums, advocating and researching everything I could to help correct the lack of understanding around dyslexia. I took Special Ed Law courses, completed a year-long practicum, and became a certified dyslexia screener. I led Decoding Dyslexia North Carolina for six years, advocating at a national, state, and local level while helping to pass the first Dyslexia Law in North Carolina. All professionals (educators, child psychologists, and legislators) had failed to discover the cause of my son's reading struggles. I was determined to keep my children from slipping through the cracks. These circumstances lit a fire under my seat, and now I want to share what I've learned with you so you don't have to go through the trauma, stress, frustration, and countless hours of research. I hope you will let me guide you.
