A conversation between Jordan Rich and Dr. Kathryn Garforth who offers professional expertise in Educational Psychology and a personal understanding of the frustrations children and adults with learning difficulties experience. Her story demands to be shared. As a child, Dr. Garforth struggled with reading and spelling in her primary years. A psychoeducational assessment in grade four helped her understand her strengths and gave her hope that with the right instruction and accommodations she could succeed in school. But it was a troubling time with many setbacks and challenges. She ultimately overcame those challenges, went on to earn multiple post-secondary degrees and now offers professional help and lots of hope to those with learning disabilities.
