Dyslexia affects up to 1 in 5 people, but the experience of dyslexia isn’t always the same. This difficulty in processing language exists along a spectrum — one that doesn’t necessarily fit with labels like “normal” and “defective.” Kelli Sandman-Hurley urges us to think again about dyslexic brain function and to celebrate the neurodiversity of the human brain.

Need feed back on results of teachers correcting RPS (Reversed Position Sensation)

Kaple’s discovery of RPS is very important, because with her “remediation grip” of the pencil all kids can learn to write and to become literate. My unpublished teacher study showing this to be true will be emailed on request to Bob (rovarose@aol.com)
