Dyslexia in Texas schools termed a 'disgrace'

Dyslexia in Texas schools termed a 'disgrace' | ADHD, Dylexia & Other Learning Disabilities | Scoop.it
An effort to raise awareness about black and Hispanic students struggling with dyslexia - described by experts as a civil rights issue - is expected to make its way to Houston in November. The Yale Center for Dyslexia & Creativity's Multicultural Dyslexia Awareness Initiative will focus on advocacy for the diagnosis and treatment of minority students with the common learning disability. A 2011 audit by a Harvard University professor found that Houston ISD vastly underserves dyslexic students, prompting the district to increase its teacher-training efforts. The struggle is compounded when parents don't have the expertise, education, language skills or confidence to take on the school system, advocates said. "When one goes to dyslexia-related meetings where parents are included, it's a vast sea of white faces, both from the medical and therapy side, as well as the parent side," she said.

Psychiatric Medication For Children And Adolescents Part I-How Medications Are Used | American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

Psychiatric Medication For Children And Adolescents Part I-How Medications Are Used | American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry | ADHD, Dylexia & Other Learning Disabilities | Scoop.it

Medication can be an effective part of the treatment for several psychiatric disorders of childhood and adolescence. A doctor's recommendation to use medication often raises many concerns and questions in both the parents and the youngster. The physician who recommends medication should be experienced in treating psychiatric illnesses in children and adolescents. He or she should fully explain the reasons for medication use, what benefits the medication should provide, as well as possible risks and side effects and other treatment alternatives.

Psychiatric medication should not be used alone. The use of medication should be based on a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation and be one part of a comprehensive treatment plan.
