Description

The fundamental question is why, if we know so much now about the diagnosis and treatment of dyslexia, do so many children still suffer?

The answer lies in the disconnect between what the science of reading tells us, and what educators are still taught in university programmes and professional development courses. The science of reading reflects what we know about the science of language development. Capacity for language mastery deeply informs a person’s ability to read and write. And yet the majority of teachers are not trained to understand language development and the connection to reading proficiency.

Objectives

Embracing Dyslexia: Understanding the Emotional Impact of Chronic Misunderstanding
We need to cross this chasm between what we know from the science of reading, and how our teachers are taught and prepared for their work.

We need to provide proper educational support and training during and after formal education.

We need to sensitize educators to the oftentimes life-altering social and emotional damage and needless suffering that our dyslexic children and adults endure.
