I am very happy to announce that Naturally Literate has our first graduate! After 18 months of very hard work H.K. has completed the Reading Remediation program.
At the beginning of grade 8, H.K. began his journey learning how to decode and encode the English language. Starting at a grade 3/4 reader and speller, H.K. worked very hard in our one-on-one classes 3-5 times a week during 2019-2020. COVID was not a barrier as we continued with digital distance classes increasing the frequency of our lessons to fast track H.K. over the summer to prepare him for Highschool. With hard work and specialized instruction H.K. was able to go from a struggling reader/speller decode books at the grade 4 level to achieving language fluency and confidently able to keep up with his grade 9 class.
I hope that you continue to strive for the stars and share your brilliance with the world. I can not wait to see what you achieve.

Have you heard of Stealth Dyslexia? I hadn't either until I read this article by The Dyslexia Initiative.
Here is a little excerpt;
"STEALTH DYSLEXIAPeople with stealth dyslexia have problems sounding out (or decoding) words just like those with "classic" dyslexia, yet typically their scores on tests where reading comprehension is measured are typically above average, or even quite strong."-The Dyslexia Initiative
Check out the full article, it short and a good informative read.
