Our story began when one of my twins was struggling to keep up with sight words in the first grade. She began to notice that other kids could remember a lot better than her, and she couldn’t keep up. She had been tested for ADHD through the school but fell into the classic school “umbrella” […]
When Kim first started BCS, I was more than a little nervous. When she said she wanted to buy property and build, I was scared. I was supportive, because I believed in her and knew it was what my daughter needed, but it wasn’t until I began working at the school in 2009 that I […]
I have always been an educator since graduating from college in 1989. I had three degrees in education by the time my daughter was diagnosed with #dyslexia, and I had no idea what to do for her. I started to network, read, ask questions, study… anything I could do that would help my daughter learn […]
I was diagnosed with #dyslexia when I was 7. I remember always going to some kind of therapy or tutoring session. I felt like I was different or something was wrong with me. With the Wilson Reading System, vision therapy, occupational therapy, and lots of other help, I was able to read on grade level. The first […]
Brookwood Christian School changed my life. Being very #dyslexic, I have always struggled with reading. At Brookwood, I was taught the rules for the English language, rules that come naturally for most English speakers. I learned there are 9 different ways to make an ‘a’ sound and how to apply the rules so I can make […]

The first book I ever had to read for a grade was “The Westing Game”. I read it in elementary school, and I still have no idea what it’s about, because I never actually read it. I couldn’t. I didn’t know how. It felt impossible to sound out any of the scrambled words on the […]
Meg is a very bright, hard working, and intelligent girl. However, learning has been extremely challenging given she has #dyslexia, #ADHD, #AuditoryProcessingDisorder, and expressive receptive #LanguageDisorder. In the public school system, Meg quickly fell behind and often felt inferior to other students. Realizing that her educational needs were not being met, we began looking into […]
Brookwood Christian School has been the answer to my prayers! My son was diagnosed with #AuditoryProcessingDisorder 3 years ago. He was in public school at the time and struggling to learn how to read. I was told that he had a short term memory problem and that he would probably not be able to read. He was […]
