Hi, My name is Hilary. I am a mom to a child with severe Dyslexia.
I started this group to help parents navigate the world of Special Education for children who have Dyslexia.
I believe in mandated Dyslexia screening in Kindergarten thru 2nd grade in public schools in America in all 50 states. This group is to help parents get more support and help from schools.
I received my bachelor's degree in finance from the University of Denver. I then went on to earn a Graduate Level Paralegal Degree at the University of San Diego.
How did this become my passion?
We moved to Georiga in 2018, I became involved with Decoding Dyslexia Georgia, Decoding Dyslexia Military, Partners in Promise, and helping parents all over the USA.
When we moved to a more rural area with a huge Air Force base, I found:
Parents did not know how to get help
Parents did not know what help was available from the military and Tricare
Parents did not know what support could go on their child's IEP Individual Education Plan or 504 Plan.
I started this group in the middle of 2019 to more actively help parents of Dyslexic children and Active Duty Families.
I help active-duty parents navigate the world of Dyslexia in schools without wasting time or money so they can focus on being parents.
