  • Rosalinda Cavazos Mexico Thanks a lot for this instructional program. I am an elementary teacher. I want to congratulate you because these kind of courses help us teachers a lot. They enable us to improve our knowledge from our workplace or from our house. I learned a lot from this course and I would recommend it to all my fellow teachers. In my opinion this course is going to help me a lot with my students with learning disabilities not only with the ones that has a condition like dyslexia, but also with the ones that have other disorders. Some of my students struggle in their Reading and Writing so I think that this course provided me with more guidance to make the best educational decisions for them. 
 Teaching students with dyslexia requires to make differentiations and accommodations that will help them with their ability to read. We as educators have to use all the available tools for help them. There is a lot of ignorance surrounding dyslexia and learning disabilities. This kind of courses help a lot to understand and help people that suffer this condition. Thanks again for all the recommendations and variety of methods that will help me and my students to grow and better develop their own abilities. 2014-06-08 00:06:52

  • Maurice Handford United Kingdom I am a dyslexic, think that's how you spell it. Anyways I normally find when reading my eyes can get lost on a page and jump around trying to find the word I last read. I find coloured over lays or glasses help this from happening. However having the course written as you have with bold and normal font throughout the course information I found it much easier to study. I am guessing this has been done on purpose and not as a random accident. So I thought it was worth mentioning. Other than this I have learnt alot of useful information. some of which I have already required from private investigation to my own difficulties. With education and the written word. Although the one thing that no one seems to state it that the individual will not get anywhere if he/she doesn't first ackonwledge that they have a problem and we are very good at hiding within the school system due to fear of the posible come backs from the so called normal people/kids dependant on your age group. Sociality as a whole is not kind to difference. Anyways thank you for the opertunity to learn and for the free education. I have enjoyed it and will continue. I'm alot slower at this kind of stuff than my sister, it has taken awhile to get through the content and i have had to you a dictionary at times but its all good fun and well worth it. 2014-04-15 14:04:16
