- Teaching the Dyslexic Student
David always struggled to learn and although teachers tried their best, at that time, Dyslexia was undiagnosed. David was 40 when he learned he was severely dyslexic, and all the research told him was that he would never be able to read very well and that there was something wrong with his brain. The stigma of living with Dyslexia is something David has endured until now. At the age of 62, David discovered there are new ways to teach reading and one new way worked for him. It took him 5 days to learn how to read well and it was all recorded live for the “Truth about Reading” documentary released in 2022.
David dispels these myths about Dyslexia
- Dyslexic students are not smart
- Dyslexic students are lazy
- Dyslexia is a brain disorder
- You can’t teach a Dyslexic person to read well
- Comprehension to Creativity
David Chalk knows most organizations rarely calculate the impact of an illiterate, dyslexic or sub illiterate work force. Many workers are able to read and write but comprehending, the essential step to innovative thought, is often an unconscious struggle. This leads to employees dealing with stress and anxiety which blocks innovative thinking and stifles growth. Learn how to measure the literacy of your workforce in a productive and meaningful way and support those who need more to reach their true potential. It’s a problem that often lies under the surface masked in secrecy.
