Last Sunday, I talked to a school that is committing to dyslexia training for their teachers. I was able to share my story as a way to connect with their community and build interest around the importance of dyslexia.
Tuesday night, I spoke to a group of future students at Portland State University. Talking to future teachers is also so important to me. I am able to share what a student in their classroom might be going through and how frustrating the classroom can be. Ultimately, it's all about working together with the teachers to understand what their encouragement can do for students.
