Every child deserves the opportunity to succeed, regardless of their learning differences. Dyslexia, a common learning disorder, affects the way people process language and can pose significant challenges in reading, writing, and spelling. However, with the right tools and support, children with dyslexia can thrive and unleash their true potential. In this interview Lia Lamela and I explore the importance of providing appropriate resources and encouragement to empower children with dyslexia on their learning journey.
Lia shares what it was like growing up dyslexic, what the hardships were, what she was thankful for. Looking back, she ruminates on how parents can best support their children with learning challenges. She is a great example of how with the right tools and the support of your family you can conquer any weakness you have.
Lia is an electrician with a truly sparky personality. She is on a mission to empower other women in the trades and to build a strong supportive construction career community. She is the host of the Sparky Life podcast which is all about trade tales.
