Dyslexia is a neurological disorder that may affect up to 1 in 5 students in every classroom, and its nature is often misunderstood by the general public. While these students experience difficulties in school, they do not have below average learning intelligence. In fact, they can be very bright. This video taps into that idea by finding an alternate teaching solution.

Many students with dyslexia have poor memory recall, so even when they appear to understand things well, they often struggle to recall the concept later on. The impact on working memory, and not just reading, stays with dyslexics for their entire adult life. However, as this video suggests, these issues can be addressed through targeted interventions thanks to teacher education.
