Episode Summary –
Dyslexic people are usually average or above average in intelligence, but when taught using the wrong strategies, they don’t perform at their best, affecting other areas, such as confidence, behaviors, and personality.
Reading, spelling, and math are skills that some of us are better at than others. Unfortunately, our society often says everyone should be great at all these things, but that is not realistic.
Dyslexic people are “normal”. They just need to be taught different methods to master the skills. When we realize that we’re all different individuals with different strengths, it releases a lot of burdens, and we ease their path.
In this episode, Jess Arce, CEO of 3D Learning Experts, talks about the 3 Ds and how we can help dyslexic children and adults be successful by getting them in the right environment to learn, boosting their confidence, and mastering those skills.
