What’s Going On Inside A Dyslexic Student’s Brain? Video

From KQED's Blog "Mind/Shift"
How we will learn.

There’s no such thing as a “normal brain.” In fact, there’s a lot of diversity in how different brains process information — a challenge for educators tasked with teaching a diverse group of learners. Dyslexia is a common variation that affects how kids read, but what’s really going inside the brain of someone affected by it?

Kelli Sandman-Hurley’s TED-Ed video explains.

Dyslexia affects up to 1 in 5 people, but the experience of dyslexia isn't always the same.
This difficulty in processing language exists along a spectrum -- one that doesn't necessarily fit with labels like "normal" and "defective."
Kelli Sandman-Hurley urges us to think again about dyslexic brain function
and to celebrate the neurodiversity of the human brain.
