Flanagan co-authors dyslexia explainer for MEA magazine

Sara Flanagan, University of Maine assistant professor of special education, and Rachel Brown-Chidsey, assistant professor of special education at the University of Southern Maine, have an article in the new edition of Maine Educator, the magazine of the Maine Education Association, titled “Dyslexia 101: Questions & Answers for Educators.” Dyslexia is the most common type of learning disability, impacting about 15 percent of students. The article is in response to a study where teachers said they needed basic information about the condition, how to screen for it and evidence-based interventions.
