Nina Lorimor-Easley to Conduct Dyslexia Simulation for Sioux Falls Educators
West Des Moines, IA – May 14, 2018 – Educators at Sioux Falls Christian Schools have invited Nina Lorimor-Easley, co-founder of True Potential Education, to teach them about dyslexia and its social and emotional impact. One in five people are estimated to have dyslexia, a language-based learning disability that is unrelated to intelligence.
“Dyslexia affects every ounce of every day,” says Lorimor-Easley. “Nearly everything we do involves language. When educators experience how tough it is to keep up with what they are asked to do in the simulation, real understanding begins.”
Dyslexia not only affects academic success but has deep social and emotional repercussions that put great stress on families who often get mixed information about what may be happening with their child. Lorimor-Easley has personal experience with dyslexia. She sought out the training she needed to teach her son to read when he was diagnosed with dyslexia.
Lorimor-Easley holds a Masters in Educational Psychology, as well as a Masters in Curriculum Development with graduate level certification in Dyslexia and Language-based Learning Disabilities.
Her business partner at True Potential Education, Dawn Philbin, is a Speech Language Pathologist and holds a Masters Degree in Communication Disorders, and has more than 25 years of experience with dyslexia remediation.
