This is a fun, low stress way for your child to get to know a fellow dyslexic and for writing to be enjoyable with no red pen involved. There’s no obligation for your child to respond, but they are certainly welcome to. Gibby will respond to all mail within 30 days.

I created the podcast to form a community of kick-ass dyslexics to show episode by episode that there are many ways to succeed as a person with dyslexia. It’s really helpful to hear people from all walks of life talk about how their dyslexia has and continues to help them in life. Since parents make up a large portion of the audience I begun a series chatting with parents of dyslexic kids. The conversations where parents talk specifically about motivation are episodes 57,60,63.
