“HE’S THE WORST CHILD I’VE SEEN IN 20 YEARS OF TEACHING.”
When Lois Letchford learns her son has been diagnosed with a low IQ at the end of grade one, she refuses to give up on his future. Testing showed Nicholas had no spatial awareness, limited concentration, and could only read ten words; he is labeled “learning disabled,” a designation considered more derogatory than “dyslexia.” The world of education is quick to cast him aside. Lois begins working with him one-on-one. What happens next is a journey—spanning three continents, unique teaching experiments, never-ending battles with the school system, a mother’s discovery of her own learning blocks, and a bond fueled by the desire to rid Nicholas of the “disabled” label. “Reversed” is a memoir of profound determination that follows the highs and lows of overcoming impossible odds, turning one woman into a passionate teacher for children who have been left behind. Nothing is impossible when one digs deep, and looks at students through a new lens.
