Kaila and her mom, Darla Hatton, share their inspiring story. Kaila will impart how having dyslexia presents difficulties and successes providing for self-discovery and ultimately empowerment. Having dyslexia can impact education and can affect self-esteem, family dynamics, and other areas of life. Hear stories of their triumphs and challenges. From the “real world” trenches they will provide practical suggestions that helped Kaila including appropriate instruction, assistive technologies, self-awareness, advocacy, and effective networking. Come along as they reveal their epiphany of learning how to be defined by their strengths -- not their weaknesses. Resources and credible information will also be provided.
