"Helping children with learning disabilities can also be a big burden on their caregivers. We learn why it's important for caregivers to seek support themselves in order to better help kids who may be struggling. Plus, we learn about the Dyslexia Action Group of Naperville and the work they are doing to help parents of children with dyslexia."

DAGN's co-founder, Dr. Karen Kreiling; James Perfitt, a sixth grader with dyslexia; and Dr. Christine Igoe, Assistant Superintendent for Student Services in District 203 discuss dyslexia. They address how the brains of people with dyslexia are wired differently, how interventions can help, and how kids with dyslexia are just like everyone else.
