As the Director of the Children’s Dyslexia Center for a decade and a half, I have had the distinct pleasure of working side by side with Helen Wallace, and her family, and I can, without, hesitation say that I have never met a person / family more dedicated to public service and the welfare of others.

I first met Helen when her family was searching for information to help their “bright but struggling son”. After exhausting the traditional education route, she quickly assessed the pertinent issues, and educated herself on dyslexia and its specific remediation techniques. What she understood on a personal level, was that dyslexic brains are bright brains that are simply hard wired differently and therefore need to be taught differently.

In typical Helen fashion, she chose to be a catalyst for change by applying for a seat on the CDC Board of Governors. Her contributions to the board were insightful and many. She wrote numerous grants, chaired fundraisers and aided the CDC in raising awareness for what is not only the most common learning difference (disability) in the world but also the most misunderstood. She passionately and relentlessly championed the cause that usually goes, not only undiagnosed and under-treated, but often just ignored. She did all this for the good of, not only her son and her family, but also the entire dyslexic community.


It is because of her incredible drive and commitment to helping others that I can say without hesitation that Helen Wallace, with the unwavering support of her husband and family, will work tirelessly to improve the lives and educational opportunities for all children in Montgomery County by lending an educated, impassioned voice to the often voiceless. Helen will be an excellent Juvenile Court Judge.

I highly recommend Helen Wallace for Juvenile Court Judge. She is a woman of integrity and compassion, having a worldview that was first shaped by her experiences of being a young immigrant to the United States and later being a fierce advocate for the special needs of her family. Helen’s desire to serve her community is well-known; she has extensive legal experience in the judicial court system and has proven herself to be a defender of justice for our children as well as advocating for the awareness of dyslexia.

 

Helen has a strong vision for the role of the Juvenile Court and I am confident that her background, education, and strong work ethic will serve her well. I am proud to endorse Helen Wallace as our next Juvenile Court Judge.
