Free public school just for students with dyslexia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) – A school just for children with dyslexia is about to open up here in Colorado Springs.

It’s called Orton Academy… and it’s a free, public education. There are only a few schools like this in the entire country.

Located inside the Colorado Military Academy just off of Highway 24, Orton Academy is prepping to open its doors for the first time this August. For this fall, instruction will be provided for students 3rd-6th grade, but the goal is to expand eventually to K-8th.

Co-founders Lynne Fitzhugh and Mike Pickering say this grand-opening is an absolute dream come true. They add this opening is not only life-changing for the students, it changes the student’s entire family dynamic.

Neurology of developmental dyslexia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Developmental dyslexia was until recently considered to belong solely in the domain of educational psychology. With the advent of better theories on language and reading, and better methods for assessing the structure and function of living human brains and for determining genetic transmission, dyslexia is now poised to become a focal concern of cognitive neuroscience, neurology, and genetic research. Still unresolved are questions relating to how much a reading disability represents a normal variation or a separate pathological entity, and whether the cognitive disorder is primarily cognitive, or secondary to a disorder in early perception. Recent findings from neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuropsychology, and genetics research are reviewed. (This review is an updated version of a review first published in Current Opinion In Neurology and Neurosurgery 1992, 5:71-76.)
