Literacy Coalition sponsoring series of films on dyslexia

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

The Clay County Literacy Coalition will sponsor a series of films on dyslexia. The first film is scheduled for 6 p.m., July 29, at the Brazil Public Library and it will feature Brenda Schum and her experience growing up with dyslexia.

A second film will also feature how a man kept his family from knowing he could not read.

Members of the community are invited to attend and learn about dyslexia as well as the warning signs.

There are two more films currently scheduled for August and September. For more information contact Marty Bell at 446-1331.

My Bio: www.manateediagnostic.com/davisgraham.as... tells the story of my life with the Gift of Dyslexia.

There are so many changes in technology which have broken the learning barriers.

Text to speech and speech recognition have for me almost leveled the written knowledge world to where I am excelling.

If I were a student today, Bookshare.org and Readplease.com would be as they are in my day to day life my enablers to the written word.

Dyslexia is a Gift, which is barely ever mentioned. The ability to think or as I call it seeing in multi-dimensions is a Gift which creates solutions. Most dyslectics see the end or anticipate the end before the means are even considered.

View the greats, Einstein, Edison, Charles Schwab and others and then you can see it is a Gift, not a disability.

The archaic learning processes we have in place today are restricted by people and traditions, they are not thinking ahead. Take for instance Bookshare.org tools. Read:OutLoud and Bookshare.org turn any book or text book into a virtual book.
