Dyslexia is no bar to Formula 1 racing champions @lawrenceschool

Dyslexia is no bar to Formula 1 racing champions @lawrenceschool | Dyslexia the Motoric Form | Scoop.it
Being a dyslexic might be a problem when reading in the classroom, but it hasn’t stopped some of Britain’s greatest racing drivers from achieving success – men like Jackie Stewart, Nigel Mansell and Johhny Herbert. Stewart believes that it ultimately played a key role in his success on track.
Canadian F1 writer and friend of JA on F1, Jeff Pappone investigates:
Dyslexics are always finding work arounds for things that come easily for others, Stewart insisted that his disability led him down paths that others might ignore, something that gave him extra ammo to help defeat his rivals.
“The dyslexic cannot think like the ‘clever’ folk, so they have to be thinking out of the box and if they are doing that, they are finding new ways of doing things,” said Stewart who was one of the first F1 drivers to cultivate sponsorship.
“When I was a racing driver, I had a really good communication system with my engineers. I could paint pictures of how my car was behaving, what it felt like, how it did this or that, and I could explain it graphically and make them feel it, so they had a better chance of thinking ‘Hey, I never thought of that.’”

New Research: Students Benefit from Learning That Intelligence Is Not Fixed @lawrenceschool | Dyslexia the Motoric Form | Scoop.it
Even a one-time, 30-minute online intervention can spur academic gains for many students, particularly those with poor grades. The premise is that these positive effects can stick over years, leading for example to higher graduation rates; but long-term data is still needed to confirm that.

Earlier, well-designed tests of simple and relatively inexpensive growth-mindset interventions had surprisingly shown improvements in students’ grades over weeks or months. For instance, promising results from one famous experiment – an eight-session workshop in 91 seventh graders in a New York City school – led psychology researchers Carol Dweck and Lisa Blackwell to start up Mindset Works, a company that offers a computer-based program called Brainology.

"These children are not bad at learning. They just learn differently. The changes that need to be made are around how we approach teaching. I have discovered that a learning environment that gets it right for dyslexic learners, gets it right for all learners. We need an education system that is flexible; a system that fits around the needs of the children in the broadest emotional as well as academic sense.

A learning environment that works best for everyone contains particular physical and cultural traits. And those traits can be identified. For example, the ideal learning environment stimulates and celebrates thinking and creativity ahead of 'process'. And it may seem odd to need to point this out, but we as humans, are social creatures, and we seek out positive interactions and happiness. Therefore, a strong and trusting relationship between the teacher and the student, as well as between students, is essential. The research tells us that happy learners make great learners. Learning that is not forced, works best."

By identifying the reversed sensation felt by these learners, turning the hand (and keeping it that way)  so that they can feel the top side of movement will make a world of difference as they learn the movement involved in learning.

Dr. Pat McGuire's curator insight, July 6, 2015 2:58 PM

I have worked as a developmental and behavioral pediatrician for 30 years (since my residency ended) and have identified many hundreds of students, and some adults, with dyslexia.  I have been involved with the International Dyslexia Association, both in the state of Iowa and nationally since the early 1990's.  While Arne Duncan (US Dept. of Ed.) says things are better, the reality is that it is moving at glacial rates in most parts of this country, Iowa included.  Iowa just had a bill signed by Governor Branstad in July 2014  making it a duty of all schools to identify children with dyslexia by 3rd grade.  But as of a year later, few (If any) districts are actually doing that or getting training for teachers to be trained in the specific reading programs that have been found effective for students with dyslexia. There are 3 school districts in Eastern Iowa who have been on top of this issue since the late 1980's, however, who have incorporated these programs into their general education classrooms with good results. A few more began coming on board since 2000, again with improvements for their students. But they did so without actually having a diagnosis but rather bringing the training to all students.

 

Dyslexia does not need a doctor's diagnosis since the tools used come from the education and speech/language disciplines. But until schools are willing to use the appropriate tools to assess for the key areas of deficit (phonemic and phonologic awareness, decoding and encoding (spelling) skills, as well as other language based problems that are caused by the problems processing the sounds in oral language which can lead to memory and comprehension problems) the diagnosis will end up coming from people like me and institutions that do tertiary care, such as universities.

 

We need to take this seriously so that we don't end up spending our public dollars later for juvenile delinquency, drug and alcohol abuse, under and unemployment, and broken homes due to the anxiety and depression that don't allow the individual to be there for the people he loves.
