Homeschooling with Dyslexia Multi-Course Bundle Giveaway

This post may contain affiliate links.

Welcome to Day 15 of the 2017 Back to Homeschool Giveaway Extravaganza. Today’s giveaway is sponsored by Marianne Sunderland the founder of Homeschooling with Dyslexia and she is giving away a bundle of Dyslexia classes. If your child suffers from Dyslexia {or you suspect that they might}, read on…

Do you have a child who is bright but struggles to read and spell?

It may be dyslexia. Dyslexia affects approximately 20% of the population and is characterized by:
–Slow, inaccurate reading
–Difficulty spelling
–Difficulty with handwriting, also called dysgraphia
–Difficulty expressing self
–Inattentiveness and distractibility

Dyslexia is not an intelligence issue. Most kids (and adults) with dyslexia have average to above-average intelligence. Dyslexia is a difference in brain wiring that affects how letters and sounds are processed in the brain. So while a person may have perfect hearing and vision, they still struggle with the written word.

Could your struggling reader be dyslexic?

Some signs of dyslexia in the younger years are:
–Trouble with concepts of time
–Unable to follow 2 or 3-step directions
–Learning to talk later than other children their age
–Difficulty learning the names of shapes and colors
–Difficulty learning letter names and sounds
–Reversal of syllables and phonemes (letter sounds) within a word
–Unable to recognize or produce rhymes
–Early stuttering
–Cannot sequence rote memory concepts such as days of the week, months of the year, alphabet, and numbers
–Trouble recognizing letters in words or even their names
–Delays with fine motor skills like tying shoes, coloring, and writing

Dyslexia in preschoolers is harder to diagnose than in the older years because many of its symptoms are developmentally common for all preschoolers.

The more symptoms that are present, and the longer they persist, the more likely it is that your child may need some help. Dyslexia is marked by a combination of signs and a lack of progress over time.

Signs of Dyslexia In Elementary School
–Does not enjoy reading but likes being read to
–Slow, inaccurate reading
–Uses context clues rather than sounding words out
–Skips or misreads little words (at, to, of)
–Poor spelling – very phonetic
–Trouble telling time on a clock with hands
–Difficulty expressing self
–Inattentiveness, distractibility
–Slow and messy handwriting – also called dysgraphia
–Letter and number reversals after first grade
–Trouble memorizing math facts
–Hesitant speech; difficulty finding the right words to express self
–Extremely messy bedroom, backpack or desk
–Dreads going to school

As a general rule of thumb, if your child has 3 or more of these signs and there is a close relative with dyslexia (yes, dyslexia is genetic) your child may have dyslexia.

Enter to Win a Free Bundle of Dyslexia Classes

Hi. My name is Marianne Sunderland. I am the founder of the popular website, Homeschooling With Dyslexia (

I’ve been homeschooling my 8 kids (7 with dyslexia) for over 20 years. I struggled for years to figure out why my kids, who were clearly very bright, struggled so much to read, write, and spell. There were a lot of tears and mistakes made along the way. Several years ago I became a certified Orton-Gillingham dyslexia tutor and launched my website to help other parents who are just beginning their dyslexia journey.

Dyslexia is a learning difference that requires a teaching difference.

I’ve created a series of parent classes to teach parents how to teach their outside-the-box learners.

These first five courses contain the information you need to start making a measurable difference in your homeschool. Dyslexia is surrounded by myths and misinformation and getting educated is the first step on the path of educating your kids in a way that is both enjoyable and effective. Put these proven methods into practice and watch the difference!

The 5-Course Foundation Bundle includes:
–Course 1: Understanding Dyslexia
–Course 2: Teaching Them So They Learn
–Course 3: Reading Instruction That Works
–Course 4: Building Fluency & Comprehension
–Course 5: Teaching Spelling

Each online course is approximately 1-hour long and includes a PDF outline for note taking and a downloadable audio file so you (or other family members) can listen on your phone or computer. As a special bonus, I am including a free download of my quick start guide to dyslexia, Dyslexia 101: Truths, Myths, and What Really Works and access to a private Facebook group just for class participants.

To enter, simply use the Rafflecopter form below. All entries will be verified. The giveaway will close on 8/13 at 11:59pm EST. The winner will be notified the following day via email. Good luck!

  13. This would be such a blessing to win. My 11 year old son was diagnosed in January. It’s a relief to have some answers but frustrating at the same time. I have home schooled since 1st grade and still struggle with how to teach him. He’s been attending classes since March and I’ve seen small amounts of improvement but I feel like if i could help him more at home it would do wonders! Thanks for all the great info you provide!!

  14. I really want to win this. I have two that have dyslexia. It manifests in two different ways, but both of them struggle. To add to the struggle, I have an older son who is book smart to the extreme. The younger two boys compare themselves to him on a regular basis. I have wanted to buy this for them for the last year, but haven’t had the money to do so. This would be an amazing blessing.

  15. I’ve got a dyslexic 8 year old. He has worked hard to be a good reader, but definitely struggling with spelling & legible handwriting.

  16. I have a dyslexic son, and I want to learn ways to help him.

  17. Although I have many years of teaching experience in secondary and college level classrooms, I don’t have much experience teaching elementary level kids who I’ve dyslexia. Recently, my youngest son was diagnosed with dyslexia at 7. He just turned 8 and still cannot read despite a lot of time spent on learning. Homeschool works best for him as we have tried both private and public schools. I am desperate to find a way to help him without stress and tears.

  18. Out of all your giveaways, this is the one I want to win the most. Our oldest is severely dyslexic and I pulled him out of public school because they really weren’t helping him. We still have so many struggles and I’ve looked at this curriculum a few times, wondering if it would help.

  19. I would love to win this. I have a 7 year old who I highly suspect is 2E/dyslexic. No one at her school last year believed me because she is reading on grade level, or a little above. But she needs a lot of help with spelling and writing. She is a highly Visual Spatial Learner. We are homeschooling this year.

  20. I suspect dyslexia with my youngest, (my husband has it also) but because he is so young, they will not take me seriously and blame it on his age.

  21. I really could use this for my daughters that have dyslexia.

  22. I would love to win this in order to develop new techniques to teach my son.

  23. This is one I’d *really* love to win. I have two homeschooling sons, one with severe dyslexia and one with mild (plus ADHD). This give-away introduced me to the Homeschooling with Dyslexia site and I will start with a class there soon to see if I feel it is helpful for us. Thanks!

  24. I would love to learn and understand more. My oldest struggles with a lot of these issues, and some have suggested it may be due to dyslexia.

  25. I need support for my son just diagnosed.

  30. I think my son may have dyslexia. It would be such a blessing to win this. Thanks for doing the giveaway!

  32. My three kids with dyslexia are a challenge . . . I love Marianne’s free resources and would loooove to win !

  33. We lost an entire year with my son due to his struggles with dyslexia and dysgraphia which just too much for him after also breaking his pelvis and being off from competitive sports for the year which made his ADHD which often accompanies dyslexia more difficult. Everything was just too much for him to handle. It would be great to have this package to start off the year on a positive note.

  34. I’d like to win this because I have three (so far) with dyslexia.

  35. I think this may be my son’s struggle with reading. I would love to try this method and help him on his journey into reading.

  36. These techniques could help our struggling reader.

  37. The thought that someone else has endured the trials, errors, tears and fears of this journey of homeschooling a kiddo with dyslexia and is sharing their wisdom has me crying happy tears! Oh how I NEED this….and my boy deserves me to know how best to teach him and his brilliant mind! ??❤️

  38. My oldest and my youngest are both dyslexic. I have been struggling more with my youngest lately. This resource would be so helpful ❤️

  44. We learned a few years ago that our daughter was dyslexic, having her tested in our hometown. I am always looking for new ways, researching, anything to help her succeed. She is so smart but she doubts herself quite a bit. It’s been a hard road but we keep pushing through because we want her to feel she can tackle anything that comes her way.

  45. Both of my children are dyslexic. These courses would be a God-send for us

  49. What a blessing this could be…We highly suspect our youngest son has dyslexia as he has many of these symptoms. I am struggling as I see his frustration.

  50. Winning this giveaway would be such a help! My daughter struggles with slight dyslexia and finally last year I found Sequential Spelling to help her with that part of her curriculum, but it’s so foreign to me not ever having had to deal with learning issues I also struggle to understand how to teach her so that she can learn best.

  51. Both my husband and I are dyslexic. We have different levels and were raised different. Once my parents found out that I had it. They met with my teacher and they all came up with a plan and I am now an avid reader and I love to write. However, my husband didn’t have that and he does not like to read at all. My daughter sees that and always asks why he doesn’t read. I want to be able to teach her to love books and reading and maybe help my hubby in the process.

  52. I would love to win this to help my 5 year old, who is showing all the signs of dyslexia his siblings have.
