Benjamin Payson, Special Honors - Cape Elizabeth, ME
Reading has always been a challenge for Ben. Because of dyslexia, he felt stupid and incapable. In 5th grade, he was diagnosed and introduced to Learning Ally. He got all of his textbooks for school, and could easily follow along and understand the words and stories he listened to. "It used to take me so long to finish a book. I'd give up," said Ben. "With Learning Ally, I could really grasp concepts and realized I wasn't dumb at all. I'm so grateful."
