Dyslexia: The struggle of our daughter's life! PLEASE help!
Background: Our daughter, Aubrey, was diagnosed with Dyslexia when she was in 1st grade. Her case was mild, and the experts thought that, with proper intervention, she should be on pace with other students in a few year’s time. Fast forward 5 years, to today, and my eager to please child is beginning to hate school. Thinking we were doing right by her, we kept her in a school that did not understand Dyslexia but offered tutoring. This ultimately created much anxiety and a brokenness as the years have worn on! Through the years, she has been a diligent student who puts forth so much effort, but we are loosing her. It is agonizing for us, as parents, to see her struggling.
Solution: Across town, lies hope for our child, in the form of a private school--a school that exists solely to meet the needs of dyslexic children. The Key School in Asheville provides multi-sensory learning, in a small class setting. Every facet of the education is tailored to the dyslexic child, and they truly understand the frustration and the anxiety these children go through. The Key School’s goal is to give their students the tools they need to be autonomous, and work to succeed, despite being dyslexic. Our daughter has truly struggled and having a school like this in our city is a blessing, but a blessing, we cannot afford.
Need: Tuition for all the wonderful, specialized help is not inexpensive, at over at $29,000 a year. We have applied for financial aid, and we qualify for 100% assistance, a level that is not offered. To assure Aubrey’s chances of getting the help she so desperately needs, we have to come up with money to send her there for two years. That is the reason we are turning to you. If you have personally known the struggles of Dyslexia, had a child with Dyslexia, or if you just want to help a learning disabled child get the help she desperately needs, I ask that you please consider a donation in my child’s future. We are confident that access to this specialized learning, will renew Aubrey’s love of learning.
Pure Gratitude: We want our little girl to have a chance to grow and thrive. I am a desperate mother taking desperate measures, seeking a chance for my child. Please know that any amount would be appreciated. Even the smallest donations add up! It is embarrassing to ask for money in this way, but we are putting our pride aside for our daughter. We admit, we need help! Thank you, and God bless.
