October 16, 2017, Tucson, AZ-----October is National Dyslexia Awareness Month, and online reading and literacy publisher, MindPlay, lauds the occasion as an opportunity for better widespread education about what it means to be dyslexic and how best to help dyslexic learners.
To assist educators and families with dyslexic and struggling readers, MindPlay has added more testimonials on its website detailing dramatic successes with dyslexic, autistic, ADHD, cognitively disabled and English Language Learners in grades K through 12. An online course titled Understanding Dyslexia and other materials support teacher growth and instill new expertise in working with dyslexic students.
Educators and others who work with dyslexic learners understand that pairing research and evidence-based practices with technology-enabled multisensory approaches to instruction, such as MindPlay, can give dyslexic learners a dramatic boost and make a big difference in success in school and later careers. A second-grader who sat with her head down suddenly became engaged in learning; a high school gang member began to have success and suddenly turned around his life; a stuttering middle schooler felt new confidence in reading and began doing better in all classes.
