Defining dyslexia: Bill mandating teacher training hits home for local mother

Defining dyslexia: Bill mandating teacher training hits home for local mother | Dyslexia | Scoop.it

Marcie malan's insight:

How many parents have gone to the teacher and ask,  Why do you think my child is behind in reading?  Why do you think remediation is not working?  After 2 years of additional help, why do you think reading has not improved?  My child still is not passing spelling?  We work on memorizing site words everyday, and it is just not working, what do we do?  We work on memorizing multiplication tables every night, it is not working, what do we do?  Do you think its dyslexia?
I did not stop with the teacher, the Administrator, the Special Ed teacher, the Title 1, reading specialist, I also ask librarians about literacy....As a parent I was shocked to discover not one of them could tell me what dyslexia is, how to find out, where to find out, and how you deal with it in the classroom.  I want to change that, I do not want one more parent to become the FBI to get answers for the child.  I do not want one more child to think or feel like they are lacking, or not smart. Teachers want to help their students, and I want to help teachers to be able to do that.  This is the first step!
