Dyslexia and Dyscalculia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

If you know a lot about dyslexia, you already know a lot about dyscalculia. Both learning disabilities are similar but still very different.

Dr Schreuder has an online Dyscalculia Tutor Training that can help you get there in about 3-6 months, all online in your own pace.

Dyslexia: News from the web:

See the review of the online program to work with students who have dyslexia.

Reading Horizons is a comprehensive, interactive reading system based on the principles of Orton-Gillingham. Simply put, Orton-Gillingham takes the idea of “sounding things out” to the next level.

Dyslexia: News from the web:

The Texas Education Agency has bought a service from a company but not everyone is happy with it yet.

The company began charging the state for $410,000 a month in October for the online platform before any students signed up for it and before any school districts were asked to participate.

Many Texas school districts do not use the curriculum offered by the service, which advocates say could make them less likely to sign up for it.
