Episode Info:

Jessica Hamman comes on to talk about why so many schools struggle to identify and properly accommodate dyslexia. You will love hearing her explain and give advice on what parents can say and do to support the schools and teachers in getting the proper resources they need to help your child.

Founder of Educator Learning Lab, Jessica started her advocacy journey over 30 years ago! She grew up in a family of education professionals with a deep interest in learning disabilities (her father was a special education attorney and child advocate-- and gathered the committee who helped develop the definition of dyslexia that's accepted in most states!! Her mom was an Orton Gillingham therapist, trainer and professor at the Center for Dyslexia Studies at Fairleigh Dickinson University in NJ!) They embarked on a journey advocating for her brother, and two decades later, Jessica found herself in a similar situation advocating for her own son. During this time she found there was such a lack of understanding surrounding dyslexia (almost as much as before!). Why was there still such a disconnect between the research to practice?! It became her mission to help bridge this gap! Listen along as we chat with this fascinating, brilliant, creative mom!
