Ep.36 - Decoding Dyslexia with Winifred A. Winston

Winifred A. Winston is a dyslexia consultant, author, speaker and coach.  

She is on a mission to educate, empower and equip African American parents with the tools to successfully advocate for their children with dyslexia and other learning difficulties. 

On today's episode, Winifred talks about how she used her steely determination to obtain a diagnosis for her daughter and find a way to get her the support she needed.  

She also shares an insightful look into dyslexia, shattering some of the myths about this learning difficulty.  

Outside of work, Winifred is a volunteer state leader with Decoding Dyslexia MD, and co-founder of the Baltimore City Chapter, a grassroots parent advocacy and support group for parents and children. 

She is also an administrator of a special education school and founder of Dyslexia Advocation™. 


“Go to meetings, call, research, read. I fell asleep listening to podcasts, listening to webinars about dyslexia just so I could learn, because at the end of the day, you are your child's first advocate.” Winifred A. Winston
