What Putting Teachers in Charge of Personalized Learning Can Look Like


Dyslexia is real, occurring in up to 20 percent of the population. That means there is a student in every classroom, in every neighborhood, and in every U.S. school. It also means that every classroom teacher has the opportunity to positively change the life of a student with dyslexia by taking the time to understand what it is and provide accommodations for accessing information that the student is capable of learning through alternate formats.

The Assimilation vs Accommodation Of Knowledge

The Real Disadvantage Gap In Our Schools

Learning disorders aren’t the only thing that can get in the way of learning. When a child is struggling in school, an undiagnosed or untreated mental health disorder may be the reason. Teachers may see symptoms of distress in the classroom, but it can be challenging to figure out what’s causing them because many diagnoses share the same symptoms. Kids who have difficulty paying attention, for example, can be impacted by ADHD, trauma, anxiety or OCD.
