Dyslexia is more common and more complicated than is usually acknowledged. But there are upsides to the condition, too.
In the classroom, says Susan Barton, founder of Bright Solutions for Dyslexia, teachers should not press students to do things that expose them to embarrassment or ridicule because of their limitations. Instead she offers a series of modest accommodations that can enable those same students to succeed.
Susan Barton will present a free seminar, “Dyslexia: Symptoms and Solutions,” on Thursday evening, March 27 at 6 pm at Sonoma Country Day School. Find out more about the event here.
