This is a wonderful piece! Share it with your students!-Lou
"Let me introduce myself: My name is Ben Foss, and I am dyslexic.When I was a kid, my mother read out loud to me. When I went to college, I’d fax my term papers home to her in New Hampshire so she could read them to me over the phone and help me find spelling mistakes. I know what it's like to feel lonely, and I want to tell dyslexic people—especially dyslexic kids and their parents—that you’re not alone. I’m collaborating with NCLD over the next few weeks to share some of the insights I’ve gained on my path from special education to completing my law and business degrees at Stanford, and eventually becoming the Director of Access Technology at Intel. I’ll be sharing insights that I hope will help you learn the facts about dyslexia, tell your story and build a toolkit that will allow anyone with dyslexia play to his or her strengths."
