Dyslexia Resources for Homeschoolers

Spread the love

If you have been following this blog for long, you know that I am homeschooling an amazing girl with dyslexia and dysgraphia. While I love homeschooling her it can be very hard to find resources. I thought it would be a good idea to put together a list of dyslexia resources for homeschoolers. While some resources work for all children, there are some that don’t help homeschoolers. I wanted to have a list that would be easy to refer to. If you know of a resource that I don’t know about please comment and let me know. This list will be updated often.
