Simple to Understand Overview

by Kathy Prater
This course provides a detailed, but simple overview of what dyslexia may look like. I encourage anyone working in the education field from young children through college-aged students to watch. The simulations are excellent in helping to understand how these students are struggling.

Great Introductory Course

by Samantha Veenhuis
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.
