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...

I have helped many parents navigate this challenging journey while restoring hope for their child’s future. If you want to learn more about how I can help you and your child ~let’s talk. I'd love to know what is keeping you up at night and how I can make a difference for your family.

Testimonials

Before working with Lorraine, my husband and I tried to get my son special education services for 4+ years and were unsuccessful although we had a clear diagnosis in hand. Lorraine was able to put the pieces together quickly and get a 504 Plan implemented for him. She changed our outcome and my son's life forever. We will be forever grateful. Her detailed examination of every aspect of my son's test results and student history throughout the years was above reproach. She is extremely knowledgeable on the county's special education guidelines and what types of services children with Dyslexia need.
