At The Dyslexia Life, we help active duty parents maximize the supports available from schools and insurance to achieve the best capacity for their child.
Founded in 2019 The Dyslexia Life has been dedicated to helping military-connected students achieve their goals for over 4 years. We have a proven track record of success and are committed to continuing to provide high-quality education for years to come. We help students in public, private and DODEA schools worldwide by providing consultation and IEP meeting support.
The Dyslexia Life was founded by Hilary Laxson. She was a Coast Guard spouse for 12 years and has been in the military community since 2000. She graduated from the University of Denver in 1999 with a BSBA in Finance and obtained a graduate level paralegal degree in 2000 from University of San Diego.
She spent time in California, Georgia and Hawaii as a Coast Guard Family member. She has a child with severe dyslexia and other learning disabilities in high school.
She is a parent volunteer for Decoding Dyslexia Military for Georgia, Decoding Dysleixa Georgia and actively involved in advocacy for active-duty military families in the State of Georgia.
. She has attended “Say Dyslexia” Day for the past 4 years in order to help bring more attention to dyslexia in the State of Georgia. Georgia passed SB48 “the Dyslexia Law” in 2019. In 2023, we helped passed two new reading laws in Georgia HB211 and HB538. These two bills mandate the creation and monitoring of reading instruction and intervention for dyslexia (instructional materials, universal screeners, teacher literacy training, reporting on teacher training, and assessment and instervention) in the State of Georgia.
She runs a parent support group on Facebook called Warrior Parents of Dyslexics and DODEA Dyslexia Parent IEP 504 Support for parents all over the USA who need help navigating the world of dyslexia. When she’s not helping parents with dyslexic children she works full time as Atlanta Realtor.
