Kudos to David Flink and the great work of Eye to Eye!-Lou

Excerpt:

"...As it often is with big ideas that have the power to change the world, Eye to Eye happened almost by accident.

In 1998, five college students with LD / ADHD from Brown University sat down with a group of similarly-labeled elementary school students from Fox Point Elementary in Providence, RI. The Brown students called themselves Project Eye-to-Eye, the name for their public service project. The program had one simple goal: give these younger students hope..."

What I like about this blog is the format elucidating how the accomodations necessary for those students with dyslexia improve instruction and the learning experience for all students--Lou

Excerpt:

 

"Here are eight tips from Berrett that you can implement in your classroom to better accommodate the learning needs of the dyslexic students (while benefitting all of your students)...


Checkout # 3 of 8 tips: 

"3. Preview & Review


How it helps dyslexic students: 
By previewing each concept before instruction, dyslexic students can better organize, filter, and prioritize new information. Reviewing each concept helps dyslexic students connect, store, and categorize information that was just presented. Both of which, help with the Executive Function Deficits associated with dyslexia.

How it helps all students: 
One of the most effective ways we learn any concept is through repetition. The more we hear and practice a concept, the more natural and easy to remember it becomes."
