She has 17 years of classroom teaching experience with elementary students and another 17 years focused on teaching dyslexic learners. 

She is a graduate of Faith Baptist Bible College with postgraduate work in special education at Iowa State University as well as many hours of training in the Orton-Gillingham approach for dyslexic learners. 

In this episode, we speak with Cindy about the biggest challenges dyslexic learners and their families face, why children with dyslexia struggle with homework, and some of the best strategies you can use to help them with homework.
