I have been there, done that. I have failed spelling tests, baffled teachers with my poor writing skills and hidden my notes so no one could see my spelling.

When I learned I have dyslexia it changed my life! Realizing that my trouble in school was due to a learning difference, not my intelligence, expanded my view of what I could achieve.

I became a Educational Psychologist, with a specialization in Learning and Instruction, and founded the K&M Learning Center to help students like me achieve their goals.


Teaching spelling rules, over and over,  I began to understand spelling patterns.  I created stories to help my students relate to the rules and taught them the questions to ask as they worked on reading and spelling skills. This approach presents spelling rules in a way students with dyslexia can understand.

I hope the By The Rules workbook ends your child's reading and spelling struggle.
