Be an Empowered Dyslexic with Ben Foss

Ben Foss is a successful entrepreneur and also has dyslexia! He coined the term “ear-reading” since he believes that there are three ways to read:

1) with your eyes

2) with your ears (audio books)

3) with your fingers (braille)

This is a powerful video and I really enjoyed it! If you like it, you will definitely want to check out Ben Foss’ book The Dyslexia Empowerment Plan!

Thank you, Mr. Falker

This is the story of Trisha, a young girl who loves stories and has a great desire and motivation to read as she enters school, only to find that the skill of reading eludes her. A teacher finally suspects dyslexia and helps her to learn to read. The very cool thing about this story is that it is actually a true story about the author, famous author and illustrator Patricia Polacco.

This is excellent! Professor Dehaene also explains in this video that yes, indeed people look at and process each letter of a word when reading.

He also touches on why many young students and students with dyslexia often reverse letters and words. Very cool!
