by Wrightslaw

Despite struggling for years with a host of learning disabilities and medical problems, Michael T. Sullivan, age 17,  never lost sight of what’s important. As an ardent activist, this two-sport varsity athlete (soccer and football) has  already done more to impact the lives of others than most of us will do in a lifetime.

Do you know a Michael or a Michelle – or know someone who does?

Don’t miss the opportunity to nominate someone for this $1,000 award. The award recognizes the strengths and accomplishments of young people with learning disabilities and ADHD.

Deadline for nominations has been extended to January 15, 2010.

    I am wondering if anyone can email me links about reading interventon, research, anything at all that shows an older child, in this case a teenager, reading 4/5 grades below grade level needs reading intervention.

    School is suggesting that grade levels are not appropriate measure. Standard scores are well below the 90-100 average.

    I’ve requested multisensory, scientifically based researched program to which I was told that was not appropriate.
