Movie about the lack of dyslexia support

Dyslexia: News from the web:

WindRoc Media Group (WMG) and Identifying Dyslexia have just announced Ill-literacy: The Divided States of Dyslexia, the first film in the School Stories documentary series. The social impact documentary takes audiences through the school system in several states to reveal the single greatest cause of the current illiteracy crisis: unidentified and misidentified dyslexia. The film follows students and their families, exposing the systematic cover-up of decades of mismanagement and denial of the illiteracy problem behind increasing dropout rates and achievement gaps.

Does reading to your baby prevent dyslexia?

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Dear Dr. Linda,

I have a 3-month-old baby and have been reading to her from the day she was born. My husband has dyslexia and I’m concerned that she may have inherited it. Will this prevent it?

Madison

 

Dear Madison,

I wish there was a guarantee that your baby wouldn’t inherit her dad’s “reading gene” but there isn’t. Whether she has a genetic predisposition to dyslexia has no direct relationship to what you are doing.

From a nobel prize winner about her dyslexia

Dyslexia: News from the web:

“I believe that learning to develop my compensatory skills also played a role in my success as a scientist because one has to intuit many different things that are going on at the same time and apply those to a particular problem”€”to not just concentrate on one of them, but to bring many in laterally. Perhaps my ability to pull more information out of context and to put together different ideas may have been affected by what I learned to do from dyslexia.”
