Dyslexia Comes with Gifted Areas
0 Susan Barton Interview

Susan Barton: A Strength Based Approach to Dyslexia

Video Interview with Elisheva Meschainov-Schwartz
Host of The Dyslexia Quest

“The giftedness in Dyslexia is so often overlooked it drives me crazy! Another way to find dyslexics, is to stop looking at individuals who are terrible with spelling, and to start looking for individuals who excel in particular areas.” — Susan Barton

Decoding Dyslexia created this great graphic of just a few of the many Dyslexic Strengths.

Susan Barton does not know who created this poster called “These individuals made a difference because of their difference.”

The Science of Dyslexia
0 US HouseAt the U.S. House Hearing on the Science of Dyslexia two weeks ago, Max Brooks made a moving plea for universal early screening for dyslexia, as did Bill Cassidy.

Several researchers, including Sally Shaywitz, shared that we do not need more research.  We need action.

Click here to watch that historic hearing.


Tutoring is Important
0 Barton ReadingThe reading, spelling, and writing skills of people with dyslexia can greatly improve with the right type of tutoring.

The Barton Reading & Spelling Systemis one of the best, and I am thrilled when parents, teachers, and tutors post Facebook comments like this:

One of my students, who has been tutored three times a week, has just finished level 4. He has made so much progress and growth in his academics that he has now tested out of special education.

This boy is in 8th grade, and he now carries himself with a different posture then he did 6 months ago.

In fact, he is now teaching his friends and family about dyslexia and is learning to be a self-advocate.
