Many of us first "met" Kyle Redford through her appearance in the documentary film The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia, in which she describes the unraveling of the mysteries of her son's dyslexia. A career educator and longtime dyslexia activist, Kyle recently expressed her dismay regarding the absence of federal policy for dyslexia in "An Open Letter to the Secretary of Education," which was published in the Huffington Post.
Now, Kyle brings the #SayDyslexia movement to educators and to social media with her recent piece in Education Week, "Go Ahead, Say Dyslexia." As both a parent and an educator, Kyle brings an important perspective to the term "dyslexia" and why it's so important to begin using the term now.
