How a loving mom, studied and learned to be a reading specialist, in order to support a child with dyslexia. This is also a story about how homeschooling became the most practical and optimum option for his education. Meet our guest for this Samu’t Sari Podcast.
Judith Sibonga has been an Educator for 18 years now. She has taught people of all ages, from Nursery (classroom teaching) to adults (parenting and marriage enhancement). Her longest stint however was with the Family Farm Schools where she worked in different capacities – from Tutor to Module Development Specialist to Pedagogy Head to Executive Director of the Federation.
In 2016, she began homeschooling her son, Javi. In 2017, when Javi was confirmed dyslexic, she trained with the Dyslexia Training Institute based in San Diego, CA. This has now become her passion that in 2019, she began one-on-one teaching to other students who are not only dyslexic but who have other learning disabilities as well. Last year, when Javi was also diagnosed with ADHD and Dysgraphia, she took a course and earned a Certificate in Executive Function Coaching from the Connections in Mind Foundation in the UK.
