THRIVE is a public school alternate program designed to enable kids with learning disabilities to build skills and experience success.

This website facilitates our work and offers the very best materials we've created for free to anyone who shares similar goals — no strings attached!

We're developing a brand-new series of non-fiction articles for beginning readers.

There are currently 31 stories like this one and we're looking for more people to help us test them. Let me know if you'd like to help!

Dyslexia BC is a parent-led group promoting awareness about dyslexia and other language-based learning disabilities. One of the group's co-founders is my friend Cathy McMillan.

Cathy and her team recently submitted a terrific letter to the Provincial Government's K-12 Public Education Funding Model Review. The letter includes a great deal of valuable information about the realities facing dyslexic kids in BC. I found myself nodding in agreement time and time again as I read it!
