Introductory note: WY Lit believes that it is important for you to hear from parents of struggling readers. Dondi Tondro-Smith from Jackson, Wyoming, is one such parent. Her story is that of so many of our bright, struggling students with dyslexia in Wyoming.

Being backed into an educational corner is a nightmare for parents of children with common learning disabilities like dyslexia. Our daughter is what is referred to as twice exceptional, or 2E. She is dyslexic and has a high IQ.

Dondi Tondro-Smith is a freelance writer and poet based in Jackson, Wyoming. She and her husband own a photography studio and can be found playing with light and words in the woods – skiing, biking, hiking and creating art with their homeschooled daughter.
