Join us for our very first episode of Dyslexia Talk. We will open the lines to our listeners for your questions about dyslexia. For this first episode we would like to talk about your experiences with schools and how to navigate the school system when a student has dyslexia.
We are opening the lines to the teachers and administrators. We want to know what you think about dyslexia. What you have been taught about dyslexia. Have you been given guidance about what to say in an IEP about dyslexia? What did you learn in your teacher/educator training about dyslexia? What do you want to know?
Please call in and share. We are creating non-judgmental and safe airwaves in order to hear your side of the story.
This episode we will have the pleasure of having, Liz Barnes, one of the founding members of the Decoding Dyslexia - New Jersey Advocacy Group, join us. We will be asking her to tell us how the movement started, what their mission is, how other states are replicating their efforts and their recent accomplishments. We highly encourage your calls and questions and for Liz..
We are honored to have the Director and Producer of Embracing Dyslexia join us on August 6, 2013. He will be talking about the impetus of his film and what he learned along the way. Director Luis Macias has always been a storyteller and a lover of cinema. As a teenager he wrote several short stories and watched more films than any one person should. After a brief swim in the pre-med pool, he found that he could not escape his love of films and of crafting stories. That is when he enrolled at Chicago's Columbia College and majored in film and video editing.
Since 1997, Luis has been working as a video editor for a graphic design firm located in the suburbs of Chicago where he gets to use his storytelling talents with every new project. In addition to client-based videos, he has had the opportunity to produce and edit six short documentary films for director Greg Samata, several of which have had successful runs in the film festival circuit.
Embracing Dyslexia is Luis’ directorial debut. This film is a personal project that came to life after he and his wife learned that their son’s struggles with reading, writing and spelling were because he had dyslexia, a revelation that has changed their lives for the better.
We are so lucky to have Dr. Jennifer Petrich joining us for this very special edition of Dyslexia Talk. This is a good time to ask all those questions you have about how the brain learns and dyslexia and the brain.
Dr. Petrich's bio: Dr. Jennifer Petrich earned a BA in Sociology from Johns Hopkins University (1994) and a BA in Psychology from Towson University (1995). From 1993-1997, Jennifer worked as a cognitive and reading therapist at New Heights Learning Center in Towson, Maryland, where she was trained in three Lindamood-Bell programs: Lindamood Phonemic Sequencing (LiPS), Visualizing/Verbalizing (V/V) and Visualizing/Conceptualizing (V/C). In 2004, she received a PhD in Neuroscience from University of Maryland, Baltimore after completing a dissertation on developmental dyslexia. She then took a research position at the University of California, San Diego studying the visual system and has lectured there on the auditory system and the neural mechanisms of reading and reading disorders. She is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Laboratory for Language and Cognitive Neuroscience at San Diego State University.
The Big Picture - Rethinking Dyslexia provides personal and uplifting accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts and iconic leaders, such as Sir Richard Branson and financier Charles Schwab. Directed by James Redford, the film not only clears up the misconceptions about the condition, but also paints a picture of hope for all who struggle with it.

What is dyslexia? On this show we will look through the eyes of Christ to better understand and decode this disorder, considered the hidden disability.
Join us as we take the "Dis" out of this "Disability" to find hope in His (Christ) ability!
Isaiah 50: 4 The LORD GOD hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: he wakeneth morning by morning, he wakeneth mine ear to hear as the learned.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13
