Louisa Moats on dyslexia:
“Quick fixes don’t work.
[W]e should abandon the expectation that serious reading disabilities can be fixed or remediated in a few short lessons per week over a year or so.
If evidence is going to drive our thinking, then all indicators point to this: screen the kids early; teach all the kids who are at risk, skillfully and intensively; and maintain the effort for as long as it takes.
Meanwhile, nurture the students’ interests, aptitudes, and coping strategies and trust that most are going to make it in real life.”
