In this episode of The Dyslexia Life Hacks Show, Matt is talking to Carol and Alana Blumenstein from KidsRead2Kids.

KidsRead2Kids offers audiobooks, as well as other study resources which are read aloud by teenage children. This is to provide role models for young children when it comes to reading there is also video content along with the audio. They have won a parents choice award.

Carol is the mum to 5 neurodiverse children ranging in age from 17 to 25. She spent most of her early life unaware that she was dyslexic, but this didn’t stop her getting a BSEE in electrical engineering from the University of Pennsylvania. Now she works in consulting.

Alana has ADHD and used to have selective mutism when she was at school. She is also the scribe of the family. I very often help her siblings with getting their ideas on her page. She says that they are always coming out with a new story and she helps them with this.
