Letter: Helping Students With Dyslexia
A reader commented on the February Voice Box, which was about teaching voice students with dyslexia, by alumnus Ken Bryson.
Dr. Sally Shaywitz [a Yale medical school professor who's the co-director of the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity] describes dyslexia as "a weakness in language surrounded by a sea of strengths." Dyslexics may also have working memory and auditory processing challenges which affect sight-reading music or scripts. As a mother of a dyslexic son, kudos to you for finding ways to teach that work.—Beth Pollack, Submitted online
