"Dyslexia: Behind the News", a video about dyslexia from a student’s point of view.

Great article about self-advocacy, accommodations, strategies and legal rights for students with dyslexia.

Students who have dyslexia are among the bravest people in the world. Every day, they face challenges at school - challenges most teachers and students could never comprehend - but they return day after day. If you know a student who has dyslexia, they deserve your utmost respect and support. People that brave have the potential to be the leaders of tomorrow.

When a student has dyslexia, a formal diagnosis can be very helpful because it often makes obtaining accommodations less of a struggle. But how do you get a professional diagnosis?
There are several organizations that can help. You can sometimes get your school to test your child for dyslexia. If that doesn’t work, there are several lists of independant people and organizations that may be able to help you, such as the IDA.
