Dyslexia Resources
http://tinyurl.com/n6rjj
Did you hear about the Dyslexic Witch?
What is dyslexia? Ask non-dyslexics and they will probably tell you it is a problem with reading and spelling. Ask a group of dyslexics the same question and you will probably get a different, although related, answer from each one.
This is because the condition manifests itself differently for each individual.

Braille Bug Site
http://braillebug.afb.org/
The American Foundation for the Blind (AFB) created the Braille Bug web site to teach sighted children about braille, and to encourage literacy among all children. AFB? national nonprofit founded in 1921 and the organization to which Helen Keller devoted more than 40 years of her life?ddresses the critical issues, such as literacy, that are facing America's ten million blind or visually impaired children and adults.
Six tiny raised dots, ingeniously arranged by a fifteen-year-old boy nearly two hundred years ago, have brought literacy to thousands of people with visual disabilities worldwide. Louis Braille, the inventor of the braille code, was born on January 4, 1809, so January is celebrated as Braille Literacy Month. The Braille Bug website for children was launched in January 2002 to commemorate the achievements of this remarkable young inventor.

Special Ed. & Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (USA)
http://www.nea.org/specialed/
Special Education and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.. USA
Access to a free, quality education is the key to the uniquely American promise of equal opportunity for all. This promise was formally extended to children with disabilities with the passage in 1975 of landmark federal legislation now known as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Public schools across the country today serve more than 6 million youngsters with a wide array of disabling conditions.
But the promise made in 1975 remains unfulfilled. NEA President Bob Chase described the major problems facing special education as "?ountains of paperwork, oversized classes, exhausting workloads -- and above all else, the failure of Congress to fulfill its more than 26-year-old promise to fund 40 percent of the cost of educating children with special needs."

Dyscalculia (or dyscalcula)
http://www.ldinfo.com/dyscalculia.htm
The word "dyscalculia" means difficulty performing math calculations. In other words, it just means "math difficulty". And specifically, it means a learning disability which affects math. Sometimes confusion arises when we start dealing with the term "dyscalculia" as it relates to "special education services".
