Written Off: America's Failure to Educate Dyslexic Children
Gloria participated in the documentary Written Off: America's Failure to Educate Dyslexic Children which addresses the issue of educating students who learn differently in America.
We're happy to announce that on July 31st Written Off will be available to stream at our new website writtenoffdoc.com and pre-orders are open now.
This is a powerful film that addresses the challenges dyslexic students and their families face when trying to find a proper education that meets their needs, and shows how one school rose to the occasion to meet those needs. We've worked hard to get it in the hands of the people who need to see it most, and now anyone can watch it from the comfort of their own home!
Also, a video has been created for R U Assertive? It can be viewed on YouTube as: Assertive Skills for Children, Adolescents, and Adults or via Halsey Counseling and Educational Center, Inc.
