Yes, a FREE e-book!
Thomais learned to read like her peers in the period from March 2016-March 2017.
An incredible tutor made it happen… Mrs. K will remain in our hearts and lives for eternity…
Her patience, dedication and willingness to teach and learn from Thomais is unequaled.
Thomais’s autism behaviors challenged the process and everyone persevered.
Thomais’s dyslexia never hindered the process. On the contrary, Mrs. K’s multisensory methods, knowledge of a variety of existing interventions guided the process. Above all, a love for teaching.
Enjoy one of Thomais’s creations as she continues to express her emotions, curiosity and above all, her inventiveness.

Bottom line: Emotions shared and unwillingly comprehending she did not win and she has to deal with it…
A big plus… no behavior crisis, no torture for no one…
We continue… Enjoy!
Now I understand why Hollywood, Netflix, HBO, ABC, CBS, NBC, Disney, Nickelodeon, Broadway, etc. will not hire actors with a diagnosis, with obvious or mild challenges.

In an attempt to entertain, the writing may reflect some of the realities faced by an individual who is considered to have limitations. But a trained actor is the one hired to perform the role of someone they have no knowledge of, they cannot relate to, many times, they don’t even respect who they are. This trained actor pretends to have a diagnosis and pretends to make others laugh or cry. Decent writing and marketing may save the show. This is pathetic, ridiculous and short sighted.
