Hope for Homeschooling Struggling Learners – Anna Meli, Dealing with Dyslexia

Anna attended public preschool and kindergarten, but severe dyslexia caused her mom, who knew she was smart and capable, to bring her home in order to keep her from being improperly labeled and segregated by the public schools. While her education wasn’t easy, her mom persisted and finally found a program that allowed her to learn to read. Even though reading is still a struggle and she didn’t learn to read until very late, homeschooling allowed her the freedom to pursue other passions and talents and provided the individualized education that she needed to succeed.

A big thanks to the author for sending us a great box of Green Ember swag, including t-shirts, stickers, and gift cards for all of the audiobooks. I (Garritt) have been reading The Green Ember to our girls and am not ashamed to say that I love #RabbitsWithSwords. We have all the books and the audiobooks and love them.

We had the privilege of interviewing S.D. Smith at the Southeast Homeschool Convention in Greenville, South Carolina, for Schoolhouse Rocked. He is a really nice guy, and we had a great time getting to know him.
