Dyslexia: News from the web:

Assume competence

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Assume competence. That was the overriding message at a recent panel discussion hosted by the Sutherland Institute called “Innovations for Students with Special Needs.”

Experts from several fields made up the panel to discuss ways those with disabilities could receive the resources they need and be integrated more effectively into school and business settings.

“Students often fall through the cracks,” said Christine Hansen a tutor at the Dyslexia Center of Utah with a location in Woods Cross. “It’s not a matter of how smart they are.

The magic spell from Mr. Fox’ dyslexia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

“Having dyslexia was a huge challenge in my life for most of my childhood. The form of it that I have prevented my mind from processing the information in the same way most people do. So if I read a page from top to bottom, by the time I finished reading I could not tell you what I had read. However, listening and reading at the same time was what made the difference. Today I spend my self-investing and learning time either with podcasts or video tutorials,” he explains.
