Excellent Dyslexia Resource​

As part of my practicum in the Orton-Gillingham approach, I have spent time exploring the International Dyslexia Association web site, and it is a treasure-trove of information. If you have a child with dyslexia, or if you suspect your child might have dyslexia, it is a fantastic resource. Its page of fact sheets is one I have bookmarked, because it provides an incredible amount of information. You can find everything from introductory information about dyslexia to how to help dyslexic students receive accommodations on college entrance exams. There you can also learn about the ADHD-dyslexia connection, how dyslexia shows up for gifted students, and how stress and anxiety often occur with dyslexia.  If you are curious about dyslexia is assessed and diagnosed, you can visit this page. The IDA also provides a helpful guide to help you determine if a particular professional would be helpful for your child.  It also has a section dedicated to families, with information about upcoming conferences and workshops, a list of schools that specialize in helping students with learning differences, scholarships and grants, and a youth art gallery. One of the most helpful part of the web site is their downloadable Dyslexia Handbook. It is well worth the read.  There is a lot of information, so plan to make several trips to click around and discover everything that is there.  ​

The Great American Read​

The new PBS show The Great American Read premieres on Tuesday and I can't wait to watch! The goal of the show is to spark renewed interest in reading and talking about books, and as part of the preparation for the show's launch, the show's producers polled Americans about their favorite novels. The result is a fascinating list of 100 titles including everything from Moby Dick to the Twilight series. There's even an interactive tool to find out how many of the books you've read. The culmination of the eight-part show will be a vote on America's favorite novel. The winner will be announced in October. I could imagine this being an excellent summer and fall activity: watching the show as a family and then choosing a book or two from the list to read and discuss.  To help you choose, check out the list the folks at Brightly pulled together for tweens and teens. It includes many familiar titles. Ones I personally recommend include The Giver, Where the Red Fern Grows, the Hunger Games series, and, of course, the Harry Potter series. Happy reading!  ​
