Debunking Anecdotes – One Parent’s Journey Through a Maze of Misconceptions About Learning Disabilities | Scientific Learning | Dyslexia and Early Literacy Success for All Students | Scoop.it
"If you read to them, they will read." That statement sums up what I believed when my first child began babbling and pointing to objects in his favorite board books. Blissfully optimistic, I eagerly began reading to my child as soon as he could keep his eyes open long enough to stare at the pages of a book, long before he began speaking in sentences.

Can we read with our ears?

Can we read with our ears? | Dyslexia and Early Literacy Success for All Students | Scoop.it

Many students with weak decoding skills can read: with their ears. As teachers, we can make a strategic choice of differentiating in our lessons in order to allow a poor reader to ‘read with their ears’ in class until the time they can read with their eyes. As long as this occurs alongside additional intervention to address their decoding difficulties, we may be improving his or her life chances by providing this opportunity.

An interesting article - relevant to literacy skills and accessibility. Helping pupils to be able to access the curriculum despite poor reading skills seems to be a no-brainer.

Bill Keeney's curator insight, June 20, 7:20 AM

One of the clearest, most accurate, and surprisingly comprehensive summaries of the problem--and potential solutions--to the field of Dyslexia Early Identification and Remediation (and the problems associated with failing to do so).  

 

Shout out to Steve Wilkins and all my colleagues and friends at the Carroll School.

 

(Minor quibble: it's not /kuh/ /ah/ /tuh/, but /k/ /a/ /t/, but acknowledging that is hard to render in a news report for non-linguists...)
