    This is a great course for anyone with limited knowledge of dyselexia. It provides a simple, yes deeper understanding of how dyslexic individuals process language and attempt to make sense of it. Due to the prevalence of dyslexia, I think this is a course that all teachers should take. It is only a brief introduction which may be sufficient enough for some, but numerous resources are also provided for those interested in learning more.
