This year, new educational laws are rolling out in Monongalia County, West Virginia. These laws are under the Third Grade Success Act. This act aims to improve math and reading skills for kids in kindergarten through third grade.
Teachers now have guidelines to follow. They need to identify if students have learning issues like dyslexia and dyscalculia. They also need to ensure their students have enough understanding in reading and mathematics. If not, there’s a risk that some students might have to redo a grade.
To get the teachers ready for the new rules, they will go through special training. This will take around eight hours. All teachers, including special education and Title I teachers, will receive this training. Here, they will learn about teaching reading and identifying learning problems.
An article in the Scottish Farmer news encourages farmers to seek a diagnosis and remediation when they notice they have symptoms of a learning disability.
Here is what they say:
Many farmers and crofters struggled their way through school with reading, spelling, writing and maths, not because of lack of intelligence or work ethic but simply because their eyes and brains interpret things differently from each other. If words move around or fade in and out on a page, you struggle with spelling and/or if you get maths calculations wrong when you know what you are doing, you could have a recognised learning difficulty such as Dyslexia, Meres Irlen or Dyscalculia.
Given the huge amount of administration that comes with running a modern farming business, don’t keep struggling on. View getting help as no different from going to the opticians; it can be life changing.
