Children with dyslexia look at the world differently ... we are so lucky they do. In celebration of Dyslexia Awareness Month during October 2018, we set out to show how our students look at the world differently. We chatted with students across our three school campuses and got the incredible opportunity to witness and experience their talents.

Hear how Rina Canute, 9th grader, uses her passion for creating and making to solve real-world challenges.

 

Dyslexia and the Performing Arts

Sophia Lucontoni, 7th grader, talks about how dance inspires her - on the stage, in her friendships, and in school.

 

Dyslexia and Music

We recently hosted an executive function panel for Carroll parents. We think a lot about executive function strategies and how to approach each student’s unique capacity in this area, whether it’s amplifying strengths or remediating weaknesses ... at school. What we realized at this workshop was how many parents are also craving strategies and tools they can use to support their children at home. In the first of an Executive Function blog series, we tackle some basic information and a few approaches parents can use at home.
