A systematic review of school-based alcohol and other drug prevention programs facilitated by computers or the Internet.

This is the first study to review the efficacy of school-based drug and alcohol prevention programs delivered online or via computers. Findings indicate that existing computer- and Internet-based prevention programs in schools have the potential to reduce alcohol and other drug use as well as intentions to use substances in the future. These findings, together with the implementation advantages and high fidelity associated with new technology, suggest that programs facilitated by computers and the Internet offer a promising delivery method for school-based prevention.

New Center to Study Causes of Teen Substance Abuse | Duke Today Mobile

DURHAM, NC - Despite decades of prevention efforts, adolescents continue to drink and use drugs at alarming rates, often with deadly results. Nearly half of U.S. students have used an illicit drug by 12th grade, and each year alcohol-related incidents kill some 5,000 young people and send nearly 200,000 to the emergency room, according to the National Institutes of Health.

Dyslexics Top Codebreakers in the UK

Dyslexics Top Codebreakers in the UK | Woodbury Reports Review of News and Opinion Relating To Struggling Teens | Scoop.it
A spokesman for the Government’s top-secret electronic eavesdropping station in Cheltenham, pictured, said last night that some of their most talented code-breakers have difficulty in learning to read or interpreting words.

Excerpt: "Sir Iain Lobban, the director of GCHQ, said: ‘Part of my job is to attract the very best people and harness their talents, and not allow preconceptions and stereotypes to stifle innovation and agility.’

Adrian Culley, a cyber expert and former Scotland Yard computer crime detective, said: ‘Dyslexic people have the ability of seeing codes with patterns, repetitions and omissions. 


'Dyslexia may in other circumstances be regarded as negative – but most people only get to see the full jigsaw picture when it’s nearly finished while dyslexic cryptographists can see what the jigsaw puzzle looks like with just two pieces.’ "


Too cool. Probably why there are so many dyslexics in fields such as internet security and white hat hacking.

From our good friends, Drs Fernette and Brock Eide at DyslexicAdvantage.com

 

Excerpt:

"Last week MPs on the Commons Intelligence and Security Committee praised steps taken by spy chiefs to harness the skills of dyslexic code-breakers.

The threat to the UK from cyber attacks, according to the report, is at its ‘highest level ever’ and is ‘disturbing’ in its scale  and complexity.

Sufferer: Some of the world's greatest thinkers, including Albert Einstein, pictured, had dyslexia

The MPs said the Cheltenham-based agency had set up a Dyslexia and Dyspraxia Support Group, which provides ‘mentoring and practical support to individuals’.

A GCHQ spokesman said some of their most talented code-breakers were affected: ‘They are very creative but may need support, including adjustments in the workplace, such as IT tools and computer software, or [reductions] in their working hours.’

In a speech last year, Sir Iain Lobban, the director of GCHQ, said: ‘Part of my job is to attract the very best people and harness their talents, and not allow preconceptions and stereotypes to stifle innovation and agility.’
