This is the second perspective on Maslow's hierarchy I have seen in the past few weeks.  As we try to make learning more rigorous and more inclusive for all students the importance of meeting student needs in a variety of ways is very important.  This must include Social/emotional as well as technological.

"My opinion is we need to take a large magnifying glass to dyslexia. We need to show people the challenges, much akin to Rick Lavoie’s Fat City video. Then we need to shine the spotlight on all the great ways technology can support and enhance learning for these students, as well as the instructional methods that are proven to impact skill development.  Technology tools enable dyslexics to engage in the acquisition of knowledge while we still provide the remediation to build their skills.  Seemingly too often, skill development is the focus or just they are provided enough to get through without being provided a true opportunity to interact with the information they are accessing or knowledge they are demonstrating."

Our friend and colleague, Sharon Plante issues a bold call to action:leverage social media to increase attention and visibility for dyslexia--Lou

 

Excerpt from Sharon LePage Plante, Director of Technology at Eagle Hill School SouthPort:

 

Currently attending #ATIA14 (Assistive Technology Industry Association) I am intrigued by the minority of sessions directly addressing the learning disabled/dyslexic population of learners.   There is great information being shared in a broader sense that definitely has implications for dyslexia, and some being shared that I wish just had flashing lights saying please use this to support kids with learning disabilities! Is this “hidden disability” just too quiet to be thought of for such an important conference? Or are educators not aware of the powerful tools to use to support dyslexic students? Whatever the reason, those in the dyslexic community (dyslexics, educators, assistive technology specialists, leaders in the field) need to come together and make dyslexia become DYSLEXIA.  There is a rumbling I hope to support the idea of #dyslexiatech.  Not that we cannot learn and share with the global assistive tech community, but like with each of the components that make that up, there are unique needs to be met for dyslexia.  Voices need to be louder and more prevalent, so that we can ensure that more students can be provided the fabulous supports that exist.

One great start is the creation of @School_Dyslexia, http://schoolofdyslexia.blogspot.com, where Jamie Martin is working to curate information from people in the field of dyslexia who are working directly with this student population. Seeing the work that an organizationslike Headstrong Nation and Dyslexic Advantage are doing along with powerful parent organizations such as @pensf, Smart Kids and theDecoding Dyslexia movement, it is obvious the voices need to become a chorus.  If we add in the continuous work of the International Dyslexia Association, Haskins Labs, and Literacy How, there is a whole musical masterpiece that could arise to uncloak dyslexia.

With the wonders of social media, there is a great avenue for all of us to connect, empower, and do what is needed to ensure that all dyslexic students have a voice, have the tools, and have the instruction that will give them success.

I encourage you to connect with the people and organizations above, as well as the following to bring the discussion of supporting students with dyslexia to a greater decibel.
