A Conversation with David Boies
by Learning Ally

This world famous lawyer, who has dyslexia, shares:

When you grow up, nobody cares how fast you read.

What they care about is: what kind of person are you? What's your character? What's your commitment? How intelligent you are – and of course, dyslexia has absolutely nothing to do with intelligence.

There are more wonderful comments in this article. At the end are 3 great things you should tell children with dyslexia.

Children with dyslexia can pass the end-of-third-grade state standards test -- even if they have profound dyslexia, as this mom shares:

My daughter, Grace, is profoundly dyslexic.

At the beginning of this school year, her teacher warned me that Grace's reading scores were so low that they wanted to put her on an IEP -- so that the school would not be forced to retain her when she failed the end-of-third-grade state standards test.

Instead, we started tutoring her after school using the Barton System, and Grace is now in Level 4.

Last week, her teacher shared that Grace scored at the Mastery level in reading on the state standards test.

Thank you for making it possible for parents to tutor their own children using the Barton System.

Audio Books Are Important

Audio books are important for building vocabulary for all students who are below grade level in reading.

This article cites the research that proves it.

And Learning Ally, one the largest sources of audio books, runs a "Summer Reading Together" contest. 20 students who listen to the most audio books during the summer will win prizes, including tablets for the top 4. This contest starts June 1. Click here to learn more.

Screening For Dyslexia – only a few seats left

0
0

Every public and private school needs someone on staff who can screen for dyslexia accurately during the early critical school year. Being able to screen would also be valuable for every Reading or Learning Specialist, every Speech-Language Therapist, every School Psychologist, and every Barton tutor.

Graduates of the Screening for Dyslexia course become passionate dyslexia specialists – who will change the future of so many children in their community.

This course is only offered twice a year – and the Phoenix session is almost full.

Only ten seats are available for the Chicago session, which starts on July 25.

Sign up right away if you want one of those seats.

For full details, go to our website, or download our summer seminar brochure.
