One in five students has a learning or attention challenge, and Idaho sixth-grader Jacob is one of those students.
Jacob has dyslexia and dysgraphia, which can make it hard for teachers to understand what Jacob needs to be successful in and out of the classroom.
Thankfully, Jacob and his mom found the Lee Pesky Learning Center, and along with his teacher at the Center they’ve created a pathway for Jacob’s success.
Jacob, his mom Lisa, and his educational specialist from the center Aubrie Gribble join Idaho Matters to talk more. Jacob, his mom, Aubrie, and a classroom teacher and scientist are scheduled to present his story during Storyfort as part of the Treefort Music Festival.
You can view this original article and listen to Jacob’s story on the Boise State Public Radio Idaho Matters web site here.
NOTE: The Treefort Festival was postponed until September 23 – 27, 2020 due to COVID-19. To learn more about Jacob’s Story and stay up-to-date with the latest on his Storyfort debut, click here.
