My own daughter taught me: dyslexic children are very good at telling you what they need to learn. Margaret Rooke’s book “Dyslexia is my superpower (most of the time)” gives these kids a voice. We need to listen.
In the time it takes to say “I’m dyslexic,” I go from being a “normal” person” to being a “disabled,” “special” and occasionally even “cool” person in your eyes. Your reaction and how it makes me feel.
What science is telling us: Do dyslexic brains work differently? What reading instruction works best?
Neuroscience is painting an interesting picture of the dyslexic brain, and how it processes information. A new report, The Neurobiology of Dyslexia, has brought together the best of neuroscience with the best of reading science to show how the dyslexic brain works when reading, and how effective reading instruction can change the brain.
