From WBUR’s Here and Now: “I’m not stupid. I’m dyslexic.”

From WBUR.

I heard a great story this afternoon on WBUR’s Here and Now program on the state of research and intervention for students with dyslexia. Things I loved: this story featured kids’ voices, and these wise, seasoned students talked about how tough it is to grow up a dyslexic reader. Also encouraging was the latest-greatest research out of MIT and Harvard about using fMRI technology to better map and understand the differences between the brains of dyslexic and non-dyslexic readers, and the ways that we as educators might use that knowledge to better address every child’s learning needs. Interesting stuff! Check out the embedded story above, and visit the WBUR site here to read, listen, and comment.
