Made by Dyslexia
The Schenck School was selected by Made By Dyslexia, along with Millfield UK, to provide content experts for digital resources intended to reach dyslexic students, their parents, and educators around the world. Made by Dyslexia, a global nonprofit supported by Sir Richard Branson, partnered with technology giant Microsoft to create a series of videos and training aids informing audiences about dyslexia.
In the series of training modules, Schenck School faculty share their highly specialized knowledge as featured guest speakers. These instructive, web-based videos now are available to educators, parents, and students at no cost through the Microsoft Educator Platform. Topics include:
- What is dyslexia?
- Dyslexic thinking skills
- Indicators of dyslexia
- Dyslexia-inclusive classroom
- Importance of identification
To access all of the videos, the training course, helpful information, and other resources, visit Dyslexia Awareness: In Partnership with Made by Dyslexia. New videos and materials are added periodically. The most recent training course is here.
David Schenck's vision of teaching children to read using the Orton-Gillingham Approach in a classroom setting has successfully remediated thousands of students. It is exciting that now, through this effort, we can reach many more dyslexic learners.
