My family are a pretty neurodivergent bunch and that means that reading words in books isn’t natural or enjoyable for all of us.

We don’t go to school or follow a curriculum at home, and we aren’t involved in any therapy or education programs. When we started to notice one of our children might be dyslexic, we had to follow our own path with help from dyslexic adults and assistive tech. Here’s a little of our journey to figuring out “Does it really matter if my child never reads?”

  1. Hi,
    I loved this. We are a autistic, unschooling, non-therapy accessing family too. My husband is dyslexic and our first son also has no interest in reading. I like you love reading, love words and feel much love for the contribution in my life. So this was great to see, because I have not questioned or dealt with this yet but knew that I had to. Were a huge techy family too, so I will be looking at what we can do to access the assistance from that. Its so true – its not the reading that is important its just the ability to access information as we need it.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. Hi Keely, Thank you for taking the time to comment. My wife is also dyslexic, and really supports me to let go of my fears. I am so grateful that we live in a world where technology is fairly affordable and can support my family access the world. Bri x
