Why You Should Never Give Up on Your Child
June 18, 2019
Hosted by Dr. Carole Lieberman
Can a child's fate be sealed by age 7? Yes, if his teachers give up on him and his parents believe his teachers' claims that he is unteachable. Fortunately, the story that today's guest shares has a happier ending. Lois Letchford was told that her son, Nicholas, had no future because his ear infections and hearing problem delayed his language development, and caused dyslexia and other learning problems. But, Lois refused to believe that he was doomed. With a background in education, she developed creative ways to make learning fun for him. Gradually, he not only caught up to his peers, he ultimately received a scholarship to Oxford and earned a doctorate in mathematics. Then he earned a Masters in health economics. Today, Ms. Letchford shares her personal journey with Nicholas and the challenges she helped him overcome. Her inspirational story can also be found in her book, Reversed: A Memoir.
