After years helping her dyslexic, distractible son after school, Kathy began homeschooling him in fourth grade. Homeschooling let her customize education to his interests and strengths, while addressing his weaknesses. The results made his neuropsychologist declared that homeschooling was the best thing for him. Other parents began seeking Kathy’s advice, and she began speaking.
