Hi ladies, I have a friend whose son (3rd grade) is both gifted and dyslexic. From what I understand, the dyslexia is a new diagnosis/discovery. I think they are struggling right now to find the right type of school for him. The public school that our kids attend ran out of ideas and his new school seems to be geared more to those with learning disabilities, but not to those who are also gifted.
I understand it can be a hard combination to work with for teachers who are not educated in this unique combination of traits. Is there any advice, tips, words of wisdom, or support you can provide? I'm going to give her a link to the board because I know that there are several of you who have experience in this area.
Thanks so much!
