Watch defeated children become confident learners.



Backstory

I work at a school for children with dyslexia. The first month of every school year is the best. Kids come in from other schools embarrassed and ashamed, having been mocked and misunderstood. They meet other kids just like them, learn about famous and successful dyslexics, and then we teach them in the way they learn best. The transformation is unbelievable. They lift their heads and smile and interact. It even changes their entire family dynamic. I'm only an admin but it keeps me coming back for more.
