Reading Experience May Change the Brains of Dyslexic Students

Reading Experience May Change the Brains of Dyslexic Students | Family Literacy | Scoop.it
Recent research suggests that the difficulties dyslexia creates with reading may not be hard-wired. Instead, experience may play a big role in exacerbating reading problems and, potentially, in easing them.

What is dyslexia? - Kelli Sandman-Hurley

What is dyslexia? - Kelli Sandman-Hurley | Family Literacy | Scoop.it
Dyslexia affects up to 1 in 5 people, but the experience of dyslexia isn't always the same. This difficulty in processing language exists along a spectrum -- one that doesn't necessarily fit with labels like "normal" and "defective." Kelli Sandman-Hurley urges us to think again about dyslexic brain function and to celebrate the neurodiversity of the human brain.

Carolyn D Cowen's curator insight, June 1, 2014 10:45 AM

A very professional little video on dyslexia that covers a LOT (including neurodiversity, AKA cerebrodiversity) in less than five minutes! There is some oversimplification (e.g., left/right brain stuff). I especially like the fact that she included the word—"up"— in this statement, "Dyslexia affects up to 1 in 5 people." Such a small word. Such an important point.
