I was moved by your cover story on dyslexia and what one Santa Barbara mother had to do to get her son a public education. Whenever children have difficulty in school, parents feel it strongly; to endure years of difficulty, and have no idea of what to do or where to go for a solution, must be very painful. I hope our schools will learn more about dyslexia and be able to offer other dyslexic children a chance at an education in Santa Barbara.

Thank you for bringing this issue forward in Cheri Rae’s well-written story.
