The National Institute of Health estimates that between 6 and 17 percent of school-age children have some degree of dyslexia, although not all of these students are identified in school. Oftentimes, a teacher suspecting dyslexia is told not to use that term, or kept from coming forward altogether. This can have devastating consequences for students who remain undiagnosed.
We have testimonies and strategies to share from teachers who have experienced this systemic denial. Some are retired, while others want to remain anonymous. We take our promise of anonymity very seriously and strive to make sure teachers and whistleblowers are protected.
We stand with teachers, and are providing a safe platform for them to voice their frustrations and tell their stories. Find more information here.
