New and great resource!!

I want to thank Tamara for sharing a great resource link!!

Hi Myra,

First off, I wanted to say thank you for putting together the "The Learning Resource Program at Fort Myers Christian School, Fort Myers, FL" page on your site (http://mrsstewartsresourceroomfmcs.blogspot.com/). There are some really useful links/resources on there.

Also, there's a resource guide by SuperSummary called the "Guide to Overcoming Dyslexia" (http://www.supersummary.com/dyslexia-guide/) that I thought your visitors would also find helpful. Perhaps it would be worth adding it to your page? Let me know what you think.

In any case, hopefully I'm not bothering you. Have a great day!

Best,
Tamara Haskell
