Daphne Corder prepared an incredible, thorough presentation for my January Conference on Dyslexia called How Do You Know If They’re Doing the Right Thing? It was over an hour and so, so intensive.  The only problem: we couldn’t get the audio to play!  We tried a few things after the conference to no avail, so we chose the next best thing… a podcast!  This baby may be a three-parter.  Daphne and I recorded for 90 minutes, and there’s still MORE!  I would have condensed it, but this is the most streamlined yet thorough Dyslexia presentation I’ve ever seen!  It was too good to shorten.  No matter if you suspect your child has dyslexia, your child has dyslexia but isn’t on an IEP, or your child is already on an IEP, this series will knock your socks off!  

In this episode- Part 1- Daphne walks you through the importance of your advocacy with really mind-blowing statistics, some risk factors that you may notice about your child that may trigger you to get a dyslexia evaluation, and some common myths about dyslexia.

Meet My Guest

Daphne Corder is an Education Advocate who specializes in dyslexia. Her determination to help other parents grew out of her own experience with her daughter, Lauren. Dyslexia is different than other disabilities she has worked with over the years. It is mired in conflict in the way it is diagnosed and treated. Adding to this confusion are the complex state and federal laws that determine how dyslexia is handled in schools.

Daphne is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with more than 25 years of experience. Her background includes work in hospital child development centers, group foster homes, counseling, and other outreach services in the field of Social Work. She now helps parents navigate services for their children, attends ARD and 504 meetings, and ultimately works to help parents advocate for themselves.

Daphne lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and 2 daughters. She spends much of her time volunteering with Decoding Dyslexia Texas, and other dyslexia advocacy groups to bring awareness and to help make positive changes for children with dyslexia.  Daphne is a member of the Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates (COPAA) and is certified in Special Education Advocacy through William and Mary Law School’s PELE Clinic.

Part 03: The 6W's of the Ashley Barlow Co - The Who

Calling all parents, teachers, school staff, self advocates, disability organization staff, doctors, therapists, coaches, tutors, grandparents, babysitters, community organization staff, volunteers, … Calling anyone that supports a student with a disability!!!


Parents of a child in special education are exhausted. Teachers and school staff are about the busiest professionals in the workforce. Nobody has time for in-person trainings, and thanks to COVID-19, few can safely access in-person trainings right now!
