dyslexia research sarah shunkwiler Sep 06, 2022

As a trainer of teachers who train other teachers, Sara Shunkwiler, a professor at Johns Hopkins University School of Education and tutor of dyslexia, finds it hard to access research about dyslexia and related subjects. Even with the professor’s ID, she still gets blocked on a lot of research papers in the library. Research papers that could’ve helped teachers improve teaching non-linear thinking students. That is why she made it her goal to look for research papers, distill it down and share it in digestible chunks to make it accessible to fellow teachers and parents. Listen to the rest of the podcast episode to know more about the language of mathematics, how the school districts and the law is resisting dyslexia diagnosis, distance learning, and the COVID-slide.
