It’s been an exciting summer here so far! Our founder, Megan Trezza, M.Ed., appeared as the featured guest on last month’s episode of the Therapeutic Approach to Growth’s Health and Wellness podcast. Megan shared insights and tips for helping students overcome challenges related to dyslexia, including the lesser known strengths related to dyslexia.
In this episode host Brooke Wagner interviews Megan to discuss dyslexia. Together, they cover topics such as how symptoms present themselves, recommended accommodations and strategies along with commonly used curriculums to help students overcome dyslexia and its related challenges. In addition, the pair will review current research outlining the unique strengths of individuals with dyslexia in addition to talking about inspirational success stories, offering hope to parents and individuals with the diagnosis.
