Yes They Can!
Students with dyslexia can become independent and confident. It starts with understanding their strengths and utilizing strategies. Check out the inspiring video below. It starts off slow, but ends with a powerful message.
Every month we'll bring you the story of a young person who has faced the challenge of dyslexia and come out on top. Be inspired by Kennedy, an empowered high school student who uses classroom strategies to be independent and confident.
