TRY DIFFERENTLY was created to combat the stereotypical responses to students with language-based learning differences. These students are bright. They’re eager to learn. They’re talented, creative, and driven. When they’re given the support and resources that they need, they can excel.

One in five kids have dyslexia or another language-based learning difference. These students, along with their families, have heard every societal misconception and myth out there. Often labeled as slow, unintelligent, or lazy, they’re told that if they would just “try harder,” they could succeed.

When it comes to dyslexia, it’s not about trying harder. It’s about trying differently.
