JAMIE LYNCH & KATE MAYER
Jamie, a mom of a child with dyslexia, has background in English literature. When she found out that often schools and teachers were not aware of what dyslexia is and how it can impact a child’s academic progress and emotional well-being, she started exploring professional resources regarding the science of reading AND became active in parent advocacy to ensure all children become READERS.
Kate, a mom of five - 2 of which are dyslexics and possibly a set of 2 yr-old twins will be diagnosed, has experience in Silicon Valley start-ups, technology companies and in public education.
