    Mr. Tacio,
    I have a son who I suspect suffers from dyslexia and found your blog about your son quite helpful. I’m hoping you can help me as where we could go for a comprehensive diagnosis for my son who’s turning 11 and displays more than half of the smptoms of dyslexia. Thank you very much.

  19. Dear Sir Henry,

    A particular article of yours had given me the strength to face the Bar exam results. Like a blessing from the Almighty, it served as a sort of prelude to the wonderful news that I’ve passed the Bar. Now i am a full fledged lawyer. The journey was less daunting because of very rare people like you…Thank you for being a blessing in my life and in many others. Wish you more success and many more fans!
