Task Force to Address Dyslexia Needs
News on July 17, 2018
Teachers are trained to identify and work with children with learning disabilities. If the teacher feels the student needs extra attention, they are prescribed special classes, educators and curriculum.
That’s not the case with dyslexia.
The learning disability is best known as children reading letters out of order. But, it is actually a disability where readers have trouble matching the letters they see with the sounds those letters and combinations of letters make. This affects a child’s ability to read fluently, spell words correctly, learn a second language and much more.
Many teachers do not receive education or specific cues to look for when it comes to dyslexia, and therefore numerous children progress through the education system struggling with reading and writing their entire lives.
