Your Dyslexia Advocate – Lorraine Hightower
If you are concerned about your child, suspect they learn differently, have a diagnosis of “dyslexia,” or you simply don’t know where to start, I can help.
I have been exactly where you are.
Ten years ago, I was faced with the harsh reality that if I didn’t step in, my bright, capable and creative son was going to be lost in the public school system...I heard the diagnosis of dyslexia, ADHD and dysgraphia… I knew with these labels, he’d have to fight every single school day...I watched him struggle to learn basic academic skills like reading, spelling, writing and math facts.
I felt overwhelmed and helpless. I worried about my son’s future. Would he ever be able to learn? Would he be able to pursue his dreams?
The answers are YES and YES!
You do not have to lower your expectations for your child if they have a Specific Learning Disability like dyslexia...
Not Sure Where to Start?

What Our Clients Say
She took a holistic approach, interviewing us about our son in-depth, reviewing samples of his previous school work, and reviewing the previous evaluation we had done. We had pre-planning meetings before we met with the school to develop in detail what our plan was and exactly what outcomes we were looking for. When we met with the school, she took the lead and made sure the school understood our intentions. She always came prepared; impressively so. To sum it up, we will absolutely use Lorraine in the future if any of our children need the same type of support; we know for a fact that we wouldn't have been as successful getting our son's IEP where it needed to be without her.
