She is currently the chief operating officer of Synergistic Education Solutions but she is best known as a parent, an advocate and a literacy specialist who helped start a grass roots movement to implement research-based reading for all.

She will share her own personal story about dyslexia and tell how she supported her son with dyslexia and ADHD to become a successful independent leaner and law school graduate who passed the Illinois bar exam in 2010. She will offer strategies for dealing with learning differences in the classroom and in the home.
