Episode Info: Welcome to The Luvin My Dyslexia Podcast: Welcome to the Luvin my Dyslexia Podcast. I am Stephen Anderson and this is session 44. Today I am speaking with a specialist dyslexic teacher Bill Hansberry. Bill has come in today to help me talk about a very important day in the year for any parent of a dyslexic student. The day you get your Psyco educational report. The day you head to your child's school, the report in hand. Many people expect a miraculous change in the way things go at school. But the truth is ... many of the teachers you are going to speak to do not have the knowledge to understand the report you are about to hand them. I fear that this year I have left it too late, but this episode I hope will be a great help for many in the produce a tool box episode on how to find the right school for your dyslexic child. Take Aways from this Episode: When you got that Psycho-educational assessment in hand of your child have someone who can decode it and explain it and out of the recommendation sections, boil it down to 3 or 4 things that teacher can do or stop doing that can make the life of your child's life at school less hellish and make it easier for the teacher to deal with it.   What to do with the Psycho-educational Assessment? 1. Find a great psychologist Someone who uses the word dyslexia, open to having a conversation with you and if necessary with the school. Some psychologist will use the word dyslexia in their report while others will use the broader term which is specific learning difficulty in reading or writing. Parents should find a psychologist that will use the word dyslexia then we'll know what we are talking about. If you are looking for a great psychologist, here is a psychologist suggested to me by a close friend:"Great podcast with Bill, he's amazing!!! Here's a brilliant psychologist that is on the Central Coast, Close enough that people from Sydney don't mind driving to see him. His reports are the best I've seen."
