Resources That May Be Helpful For People With Dyslexia
Courtsystem.org - www.courtsystem.org
This site seems to have a complete database of listings for all emergency, legal, and law enforcement government offices in the country, including working phone numbers for each. This was brought to our attention by Suzanne, a Hidden Abilities' follower who said that this site, "...alleviated my frustrations and has proven to be rather accurate." So if you're trying to be an advocate for your child but you're tired of calling wrong numbers or trying to navigate through the maze of local government website, you might give this website a shot.
Driving Office - www.drivingoffice.com
This resource was brought to our attention by a woman named Kate. She had the following to say about this site:
"When my granddaughter was going for her driving permit test I took it upon myself to do some research and make sure she not only had the tools she'd need to pass the test (and save me the headache of driving back and forth to the dmv), but make sure she had the knowledge she'd need to be a safe driver. In doing so, I came across www.DrivingOffice.com - a site that has practice tests for each state; which she used to quiz herself and prepare for the actual exam. The site was a perfect complement to her driver's education course. I was inspired to share it with you when I saw your page."
