Dyslexia

Dyslexia!

I have learned so much about dyslexia in the last few months it is amazing! Here are a few things I learned that most people do not know and should:

  • Reading is NOT innate.
  • Our brains recycled areas to read with, but some people (15-20%) do NOT have the same neurological connections for reading as others.
  • Reading for dyslexics is completely different… they cannot simply try harder and succeed.
  • You can re-wired your brain! Your brain is amazingly placid.
  • Dyslexics CAN receive effective and targeted instruction in the general education classroom.
  • There are ways to intervene sooner and lessen the likelihood that a student slips further behind.
  • Programs that target dyslexic students should be readily available and common knowledge in the education field.
  • If you are only able to reach 80% of your students… you are failing 20% of your students. That is NOT good. Ever!
  • You want to strengthen not circumnavigate a dyslexics reading brain.
  • If you teach a dyslexic child with generalized education they WILL ALWAYS struggle and move further and further behind.
  • You CAN close the gap!

 

I will try to show you how I am doing it and give you resources to do it too! Screen Shot 2018-03-24 at 6.05.16 PM

Hello! I am a general education teacher in a public school system that believes in arming teachers and parents with the tools to make sure EVERY child is successful BEFORE they show signs of failure. Response to intervention should be an indicator NOT failure to respond to general education. <3 Arm yourself with knowledge
