Many students with learning differences have dyslexia. But what is it?
By producing this video, Forman School hopes to answer that question, dispel myths, and raise awareness about the challenges of students with dyslexia. The truth is, it has nothing to do with a student's vision or intelligence. It has everything to do with how the brain processes language.
For more insight, I invite you to read Forman teacher Devin Burkhart’s article, Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia – Understanding and Supporting the ’Dys.’ You will be surprised at the potential for the right interventions to improve academic and career outcomes for students who read differently.
Educator Adam Man continually presents and publishes his thoughts and research on topics from teacher credentialing to boarding school life. He has served as Head of School at Forman since 2008.
