You are no longer a child and you (and your parents) tried everything but you still have a hard time reading, math formulas cause panic attacks, and no amount of planning keeps you on schedule. Don’t give up, because our new strength-based approach to dyslexia, dyscalculia, and executive dysfunction often works where other methodologies fail. These disabilities typically come in one package with enhanced (but often underused) capacities to guess, to predict, to use analogies, and to improvise. Given detailed directions, you will get lost, but knowing your destination, you will find it yourself.

Throughout life, we go through many different phases. Some phases come with their own set of challenges and make us feel stuck, powerless, and unsure of what to do next.
