Okay, hold up your right hand and repeat the dyslexia pledge after me.
At Dyslexia Training Institute we’re committed to bringing you the best information and support on your journey with dyslexia. Finding the right thing to say at an IEP meeting is a frequent concern for our parents and advocates. Thankfully, our “Dyslexia is Real.” t-shirts make that a bit easier.
To thank our fans for helping us grow our online community, we are giving away a t-shirt that we feel is entirely appropriate school meeting attire. Use the entry form below for your chance to win! Thanks so much for being part of the DTI online community!
Writing articles and then publishing can be fun, satisfying and hopefully, helpful to those who read them. But every author knows that it takes a certain amount of courage to put your thoughts on paper, or on video, and send it out to the world. Every author knows, or should know, that someone will (and should) scrutinize anything that is published. In my case, I usually welcome the scrutiny because it keeps me on my toes. It requires that I do not become complacent or lazy. It requires that I do my due diligence and make sure I am as accurate as possible before I publish anything. If I make a mistake, and who doesn’t, I learn from each and every one.
Every teacher in every classroom in every school in this country (and beyond) will come across several, if not dozens, of students who just can’t keep seem to get the ‘reading thing’ down. The students are smart, articulate, and creative, yet they omit small words, read slowly, have difficulty spelling, and stumble, guess or mumble through multisyllabic words. They are placed in reading groups for extra instruction and still don’t seem to ‘get it.’ And during his or her career, every teacher in every classroom in every school will ask themselves, “How can I help these children?” The answer is to learn as much as possible about dyslexia, because the child described above has dyslexia.
