  • 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
