Why can’t special education do better helping kids with dyslexia?


“Special education can’t fix all the literacy
problems that children have. Because it’s a way to fail system. It’s not
oriented towards early intervention. And they’re far too many children who
need literacy interventions. The goal should be to reduce the number
of kids who need special education services to a very small number, so that
you can give them very intensive interventions. The level of intensity that’s
needed to remediate a reading problem is much more intense than people
typically imagined.”
