Naming dyslexia helps teachers, parents, and -- most of all -- dyslexic students themselves. @TheBigPicture: Rethinking Dyslexia #mondaymotivation #educationNaming dyslexia helps teachers, parents, and -- most of all -- dyslexic students themselves. ...
From the time I was two years old to the time I was 40, hockey was all I’d ever known. It was my life. My undiagnosed dyslexia and dysgraphia had forced me to hide from the world and focus only on the game - NHL Player and Dyslexia Advocate, Brent Sopel #dyslexia #advocacy #education ...
There are 35 students in King’s class. There just isn’t time to read assignments aloud to King or to give him one-on-one attention. So despite the legal requirements that the teacher is to do so, she hasn’t been. #dyslexia #education ...
King Korper’s teacher told the third grader’s mom, Contessa, that delivering on the requirements of an individual education plan is nearly impossible because the class is too crowded for one-on-one attention.
It's a frustrating experience for both parents and teachers...although this particular teacher does not seem to understand the basics of what is allowed and not allowed to be said which makes me wonder how much training she has had. Charter schools do not always have the same hiring requirements as traditional public schools.
We need to speak out to our representatives that schools need to be better funded. Ultimately, class size, ese resources, and training for our general ed. teachers all stems from how much funding we get.
I've had years with good resources and support and everyone of my kids did well. I've had other years where my see support was constantly being pulled elsewhere and I was on my own.
I've also had years where the language arts class that my reading kids (many with IEPs) could not keep a teacher and spent most the year with a sub.
I am fortunate to have been raised by an ESE teacher and have taken quite a number of ese training workshops over the years (and mother to kids with special needs) so I still had a good grasp on how to help my students best without proper support.
Hmm sounds so familiar. My daughter went to a charter school on the East side of Cleveland for kindergarten. She struggled with reading & even with multiple requests to the teacher for help & ideas to help at home I was just told repeatedly that she would catch up later. We ended up moving & after continued difficulties we were told she has dyslexia.
This was the placement for my ASD son who also has Sensory processing, speech and occupational deficits. Luckily it was only for the last six weeks of school when we moved I now have proof that he can never be placed in a classroom setting like that.
My daughter's principal worked with her
My daughter's classes. Went from 15% to the 75% class size 34 to 10. 1 year.
This makes my blood boil!!! And happens everyday in a lot of schools around the states....something has to change!!!
