As we continue to take steps to bring new methods of instruction to our up-and-coming teachers about the effects of dyslexia and methods of intervention; we are reminded by an essay, written by a middle school student, as to why this is part of our mission.
As we like to say, out of the mouths of babes:
“After years of intensive interventions including tutors and outside programs, I can finally pick up a book and read it like it’s nothing. This could be the future for many kids but not until teachers are trained properly and appropriate interventions are provided. In the meantime, we all need to remember, “Great minds don’t think alike.” -Hayden Miskinis
This essay, by Hayden Miskinis, is one of the top three winners in the middle school category of our Seventh Annual Student Editorial Contest for which we received 1,242 entries.
