Project Baltimore’s phone lines are lighting up over concerns about the devastating impact of undiagnosed learning disabilities. Most all the callers saying their dyslexia was not diagnosed by the public school system.

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. They are very, very capable. Dyslexia students need one-on-one attention. It’s a big challenge for them. Some lose their motivation.”

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.

Piano playing and Dyslexia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

A DYSLEXIC man has invented a system for teaching the piano to people with learning difficulties.

Emoji-Go is based on standard musical notation but assigns the colours of the rainbow to each of the seven notes from A (red) to G (violet).

These are illustrated with emojis, the smiley-faced characters used in text messages and on social media.

Inventor Kevin Thomson, 67, from Peppard Common, came up with the idea as he had struggled to learn to play the piano as a child.

Fixing Dyslexia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Read the interview in the link of the day and see how easy the fix would be:

“Rather than a knowledge gap, we have an action gap,” Shaywitz, a professor of pediatrics at Yale University School of Medicine, told me in a recent interview. “We have to act on the knowledge we have, and we haven’t done that, and it’s absurd.”
