Can E-Readers Ease Reading for Dyslexics?

Can E-Readers Ease Reading for Dyslexics? | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

"The causes of dyslexia—the disorder that makes reading excruciatingly difficult for about one in twenty school-aged children—have remained frustratingly elusive, as has anything resembling a cure. Training programs for dyslexics have proven effective at improving certain parts of the reading process, such as phonological awareness and auditory perception.

Once these skills have been brought up to speed, however, there still remains what one group of researchers calls a “vicious circle”: the most effective way to get better at reading is to read more. So scientists have turned their attention to a new question: Are there ways to make reading easier for dyslexics?"

Watch a preview below of Aidan's story. Aidan was diagnosed with dyslexia in 2nd grade, which took a toll on her self esteem, and confidence as a learner. Thanks to Aidan's hard work, her parents support, and help from The Churchill School in New York City, her story can be seen as an inspiration for other kids who struggle with dyslexia. (Video)
