Keely McCabe, now thirteen years old, was diagnosed with dyslexia in the second grade. After starting tutoring, McCabe’s mother decided her daughter would have better educational progress if she were home schooled.

Her mother also contacted a publications company that teaches homeschoolers to write children’s books. Through this eight-week program, McCabe began her journey of teaching others what it’s like to have dyslexia as well as dispelling some of the misconceptions about dyslexia.

Her now published book, It’s Not Always As It Seems (A Story about Dyslexia) serves to teach this lesson. McCabe hopes that her book will help newly-diagnosed dyslexics see that they can succeed.
