Time to celebrate

This was posted on a homeschool Facebook page.  The parent gave me permission to share it here. 

I am celebrating tonight.

I have a child who was diagnosed as profoundly dyslexic at 9 years old. We went through 7 levels of the Barton System while I homeschooled him.

He is now in a college-prep, private high school. At the recent parent-teacher conference, his teacher was shocked to find out he is dyslexic. I did not tell the teachers in advance because I wanted to get a true measure of his capabilities.

He has excellent grades. The teacher said he even volunteers to read Macbeth aloud in class.

I almost cried! This is the same kid who made me ask our youth pastor to not call on him to read out loud … ever.

So stick with it, homeschool parents. It is so worth the years of hard work.
