Opening ourselves up to the conversation about our child having a learning challenge is so freeing yet can be a scary step to take. You are not alone! Delphine Rule shares her experience on how parenting changes when your child has a learning difficulty and the steps you can take when they need further support.

Delphine Shares:

  • Steps to take when you or your child’s teacher feel your child needs further support
  • How parenting changes when your child has a learning difficulty

My favourite part of the conversation is when Delphine shares her own struggle as an adult with an LD and how she is supporting her own children and others now through access2education


Meet Delphine Rule

Hi, I’m Delphine, a mother, wife, teacher and strong believer that all children have the potential to make a difference no matter how difficult their learning struggle might be. Something else worth mentioning, I have Dyslexia, a disABILITY my children both share with me. Does it define me? Absolutely not. It’s simply just part of my journey, one I’ve navigated proudly.

With learning disABILITIES can come uncertainty and worry, but in no way shape or form do they hold us back from realizing our greatest potential.  I’ve fought hard to be successful and it wasn’t always easy but with every experience came a valuable lesson and insight I can pass on to you.

I was raised by parents who never stopped learning all they could about how to enrich my education program allowing me to flourish. Their strong leadership and advocacy taught me from a young age that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

As both a parent and a teacher I’ve realized how important giving back to my community is. I’ve made it part of my life’s work to navigate uncharted territory and learn what I can for the betterment of my life and others.

Instead of letting worry and fear drive me, I got informed. I built my research library and community connections and grew stronger and more resilient. I turned hard work and passion into advocacy and fought to open the eyes and ears of stubborn systems.

Together, we can build a road map to secure the right resources and services for you and your family and continue to make change.
