This video should give encouragement to children with dyslexia. Paul Orfalea is one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country, and he achieved all of this despite (or because of) his dyslexia. His story has given me a lot of inspiration for my 8 Wishes, and it was amazing to meet someone who is so much like me. Knowing all this gives me hope.

Is It A Learning disability? Or Are These Kids Really Smarter In Other Ways And Have Other Gifts

Definition: A "learning disability" is a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding and using language spoken or written which may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, spell, or do mathematical calculations.

Learning differences and ADHD are often the result of a problem with the central nervous system where perception and/or processing may be affected. While a neurologically-based problem will not disappear, an individual who receives help and assistance can usually learn compensation strategies for his particular learning style.

International Dyslexia Association

Welcome! The International Dyslexia Association (IDA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping individuals with dyslexia, their families and the communities that support them. IDA is the oldest learning disabilities organization in the nation -- founded in 1949 in memory of Dr. Samuel T. Orton, a distinguished neurologist. Throughout our rich history, our goal has been to provide the most comprehensive forum for parents, educators, and researchers to share their experiences, methods, and knowledge.

All Kinds of Minds

The All Kinds of Minds’ mission is to help students who struggle with learning measurably improve their success in school and life by providing programs that integrate educational, scientific, and clinical expertise. Our primary goal is to educate teachers, parents, educational specialists, psychologists, pediatricians, and students about differences in learning, so that children who are struggling in school because of the way their brains are “wired” are no longer misunderstood.
