Shannon Prendgergast's curator insight, November 12, 1:25 PM

Even though I do not want to attended these colleges it is a helpful to consider this while looking at colleges. I will need to call the representatives of the school I wish to apply to and talk with them about what kind of accommodations they have for students like me.  I know I will need to have  accommodations for extended time on tests and assignments as well as needing provided notes because of the challenges I face while trying to copy material from the board. information just gets lost between the link of my brain to my hand. This article is just a reminder of the steps I will need to take.

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.

Dyslexia: An Ounce of Prevention... | The World of Dyslexia | Scoop.it
Tina Marie DeLong's insight:

I am thrilled that this article is written directly to the people that have influence over our children's education - the teachers.  I have two boys with dyslexia - one being quite profound - and the damage done to who they are as young men before receiving the appropriate interventions has been horrendous.  So many times, the behaviors our children exhibit due to academic failure is looked upon as the reason for not making education progress.  Please teachers, take time and get informed.  You and your students will forever be changed.
