Terry Doherty's curator insight, November 2, 3:27 PM

The article is fairly technical, but you can scroll down to get to the essence for helping dyslexic learners: "The typically developing readers showed greater connectivity to linguistic regions than the dyslexic group. Those with dyslexia showed greater connectivity to visual and (memory encoding and retrieval) regions."

A Historic Hearing on Dyslexia

A Historic Hearing on Dyslexia | Dyslexia DiaBlogue® | Scoop.it
For two hours at the Rayburn Office Building of the House of Representatives on Capitol Hill, there were no Democrats or Republicans -- just citizens who are concerned about the prevalence of dyslexia in our nation’s children, and convinced that something huge needs to be done to help these kids read, learn and thrive. The Congressional Committee Hearing on The Science of Dyslexia brought educators, parents, and lawmakers to the table.
Carolyn D Cowen's insight:

An excellent summary! Yes, I do think we can refer to this one as historic without fear of overstating things.

Holding Kids Back Doesn't Help! So what does Ohio's 3rd grade Reading Requirement Guarantee?

Holding Kids Back Doesn't Help! So what does Ohio's 3rd grade Reading Requirement Guarantee? | Dyslexia DiaBlogue® | Scoop.it
At a time when more states are moving to retain struggling students in lower grades, research shows that such efforts are counterproductive, Deborah Stipek and Michael Lombardo say.

 

A majority of peer-reviewed studies over the past 30 years have demonstrated that holding students back yields little or no long-term academic benefits and can actually be harmful to students. When improvements in achievement are linked to retention, they are not usually sustained beyond a few years, and there is some evidence for negative effects on self-esteem and emotional well-being.

Moreover, there is compelling evidence that retention can reduce the probability of high school graduation. According to a 2005 review of decades of studies by Nailing Xia and Elizabeth Glennie: "Research has consistently found that retained students are at a higher risk of leaving school earlier, even after controlling for academic performance and other factors such as race and ethnicity, gender, socioeconomic status, family background, etc."

Terry Doherty's comment, November 7, 5:29 PM
I have mixed feelings on this ... there ARE times when holding a child back is productive. I've certainly seen it with my nephew. BUT it was caught very early on in his education.
