Dyslexia and Classroom Concepts, Part 1
Presented by Infinitec
Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Part 1 of this series defines dyslexia, provides the statistics, and difficulties students experience at different age levels. Included is a video of students sharing their personal experiences.
