I WASN’T READY, BUT I WILL BE!!
I did not expect the response to my latest article in the Tennessean to generate as much interest as it has. It has been published or referenced around the world and across the U.S. I mean I am certainly grateful, but what this tells me is that there is great need for dyslexic interventions on the state and federal level as well as a need for more research.
Among the responses were heartfelt expressions of frustrations from a people from all walks of life. One senior citizen was seeking intervention and tutoring for his 73 year old wife who has dyslexia. Many veteran educators were at a loss as to how to serve students who didn’t qualify for services, or pleading for assistance with intervention strategies. Still others were from frantic or frustrated parents of students with dyslexia or people who have dyslexia expressing thanks.
I was not ready for the response, but my commitment is this: I will be posting helpful links, articles, and information on a regular basis. Please come back and visit. Also check out my current links and feel free to let me know if one is not working. In the meantime, if your from Tennessee, please write the Governor and our legislators and request establishment of a task force to explore interventions and educational reform for those who have dyslexia or other similar disorders.
If you’re not from Tennessee, you can still help by expressing your frustrations or sharing links here, or on facebook, or writing your own legislators. Thanks for the support. It sincerely means a lot. I am just one person who sees a problem and I’m hoping to be a part of the solution. Join me!
