SCHOOL SUPPLIES NEWSLETTER
Volume 3 - Issue 1 by Ari E. Fox, LCSW-R
Welcome to the back to school issue of School Supplies! We hope you and your family enjoyed the holiday season and are looking forward to a fulfilling and productive 2014. It has been some time since the last installment, during which we have been busy with the growth of our Copewithschool Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Practice in New York City. We now have extended hours for individual, family and group treatment.
We recently had the opportunity to speak with Scott Forsythe of the Dyslexic Kids Organization. Scott, now 16, started Dyslexic Kids at age 14 after realizing that support groups targeted parents of kids with disabilities, but not the kids themselves. Dyslexic Kids provides a wealth of online support and resources for children and teens with dyslexia as well as local support groups in Scott's home state, Indiana. Scott has worked hard to overcome his struggles with dyslexia and is admirably helping others understand and cope with dyslexia. You can check out Dyslexic Kids here or follow on Facebook. Below are excerpts from our discussion with Scott.
