The Dyslexia Resource and The Schenck School are excited to partner with Made by Dyslexia and Microsoft to help educate the public about dyslexia.
We are working with technology giant Microsoft and the global charity co-founded by Sir Richard Branson, Made By Dyslexia, to inform global audiences about dyslexia. Schenck School faculty joined celebrities including Sir Richard Branson, Keira Knightley, Orlando Bloom and Maggie Aderin-Pocock to create five Dyslexia Awareness training films. The modules are designed to help teachers, educators and parents understand dyslexia, both its strengths and challenges, gain essential knowledge in how to recognize and support it, and create a dyslexia inclusive classroom.
"Dyslexia expert teachers from two world-leading schools are sharing their wisdom and expertise in these modules. Millfield School UK and Schenck School USA are both pioneers in the field of dyslexia and the first schools in their respective countries to successfully support students with dyslexia, with a focus on dyslexic strengths. Made By Dyslexia is a global charity led by a cohort of some successful celebrities and individuals with dyslexia who support the charity by contributing their insights."
"Imagine a world where people with Dyslexia are educated in a way that supports them. It means anything is possible... ANYTHING is possible."
