I am emailing from work. I am interested in as much information as possible regarding Dyslexia. My 14 year old son was diagnosed when he was 7 and my 22 year old daughter was diagnosed when she was 15. Please direct me to as many websites as possible regarding Dyslexia. My son will be attending high school in Delaware next year and I am worried sick because public schools here and most private school are not equipped for teaching him. He is in a private school now but only because of financial aid and it looks like we may not be getting enough financial aid for him to attend a private high school. Public school is so not equipped for learning disabilities in Delaware. Anything you could refer me to would be great. I’ve tried searching but I want legitimate websites. Many thanks.

Your best place to start, well, you've already found it—our website. We have a lot of information, including websites, links, software, and apps, to help you. I'd recommend starting with this page [1] for websites. The National Center on Learning Disabilities (NCLD) [2] is a very reputable organization. You could also contact your local or state Learning Disabilities Association (LDA) [3] or International Dyslexia Association (IDA) [4] chapters as well. They should have resources for you.
