For the past 20 years, Lois Letchford has been a literacy problem solver. Specializing in teaching children who struggle with learning to read, her creative teaching methods vary depending on the reading ability of the student, employing age-appropriate, rather than reading-age-appropriate, material. Lois’s non-traditional background, multi-continental exposure, and passion for helping failing students equip her with a unique skill set and perspective.
Through coaching and workshops at international conferences, TV appearances, and highly-rated radio stations, she uses her own story in Reversed: A Memoir, the story of her son's—and her own—learning disability, to teach educators and parents how to create flexible learning environments using comprehensive & innovative teaching methods.
On this episode we discuss her transition from SAHM to going back into the workforce after 14 years, the hindrance of labeling children, looking into what is causing a child's behavior and not just writing them off, her mama bear instincts to step in & help her son when no other teachers would, and her son's incredible journey from being called "the worst child" to receiving a scholarship to Oxford.
