This is the story of Micki Boas, a mom of 2 children with dyslexia, who legally fought the school for 4 years just for her child to have access to proper dyslexic support which is supposed to be provided through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). In this episode, Micki shares her dyslexia story and how she came up with writing a book called "ONE IN FIVE: How we're fighting for our dyslexic kids in a system that's failing them", a book about her experience and 200 other parents and educators battling the school system for their children’s rights as individuals with dyslexia. In the book, Micki highlighted the following major obstacles that keep on tripping them up; 1. The lack of funding, 2. The lack of early intervention, and 3. Under-trained teachers. She also mentions some things that the parents could do to overcome these obstacles. Listen to the podcast if you want to hear more about it.
