Life's insights with Henry Winkler:
Dyslexia, Tenacity and more

From Dyslexic Advantage

He got his diploma in the mail only after taking the same geometry class eight times in a row over the course of four years, during the summers and regular school semesters, and finally passing with a D-.

"All of that humiliation, and all of that frustration, and all of that lack of self," Winkler recalls. "I thought, 'What, am I the only one who's not getting this? This is crazy. Geometry means nothing in my life."'

Great Entrepreneurs

0

Kids with dyslexia may not look great on standardized tests, but according to several studies, 35% of all entrepreneurs are dyslexic.

By the way, students with dyslexia often are on the honor roll if they have accommodations, use technology tools, and/or get the right type of intervention.

Five Times The Brain Area

Students with dyslexia use nearly five times the brain area when they read.

No wonder they are exhausted at the end of a school day.

Thank you, Decoding Dyslexia Ohio, for this great graphic.

Teach Decoding

This is why it is important to teach decoding.

Decoding means the ability to read words by sounding them out.

Regained His Self-Confidence

Susan Barton loves getting emails like this:

Five years ago, my son was struggling terribly. He was in third grade and could no longer mask the difficulty he was having with reading fluency.

Homework drove him to tears. It had gotten so bad that he would hit himself in the head and call himself "stupid." It broke my heart.

Today, Nolan completed the Barton Reading & Spelling System with Janis Garcia, a wonderful Certified Barton Tutor. He proudly received his certificate signed by Susan Barton.

Nolan is excelling in school, but perhaps more importantly, he has regained his self-confidence.

I can't thank you enough for all you have done to drive awareness, to advocate, and to provide resources for addressing the needs of children with dyslexia. It has made all the difference in the world for our family.
