Nicholas Talik - LTL
Annual National Achievement Award Special Honors Winners
Nicholas Talik, Special Honors - Houston, TX
Nicholas is a nursing major. In 4th grade, he couldn't recall anything he tried to read. His dyslexia kept him from decoding words fast enough and effectively. When he couldn't write a book report, he was told that he was dumb and that he wouldn't make anything of himself. Nicholas proved them wrong. Today, he is an eagle scout and uses Learning Ally to study the Boy Scout Handbook. He is proud of his accomplishments. "Going to the library was my least favorite thing to do," he said. "Now I can study for many hours. Learning Ally is so important for me to level the playing field."
