Dyslexia Workshop

Date: Sunday, October 24      Time:  3 PM     Cost: Free

All About Dyslexia

Hosted by Dr. Irene Van Riper of Nature and Needs, this workshop will focus on the characteristics, signs and symptoms of dyslexia, the dyslexia advantage, and the benefits of early intervention. We will discuss recommendations for supporting the individual with dyslexia, and accommodations for success.

October is Dyslexia Awareness month!

Are you a parent of a child who has reading difficulties? Do you think your child might have dyslexia, and wonder why they cannot read or spell as well as their peers? Is there a student in your classroom who is very bright is all areas, but shows signs of reading problems? Join us to discuss your concerns and questions.

Did you know that our brains were not created for reading? There are specialized areas in our brains that help with language. However, learning to read and spell means our brains must translate the spoken word into a code (reading) and then back again (spelling). It isn’t “natural” to read! One in five children have dyslexia in some form. Knowing how we learn to read, and spell is important for every parent, teacher, or community member as we help children and adults succeed in this critical area.

About Dr. Riper

Irene Van Riper, Ed.D., A/OGA will discuss characteristics, signs and symptoms of dyslexia, benefits of early intervention and how the brain reads.

Dr. Riper has a doctorate in Reading and Cognitive Studies from Widener University and is certified by the Academy of Orton Gillingham to implement the Orton Gillingham approach for intervention. She is a Dyslexia Therapist and a Diagnostic Advisor for individuals  with learning disabilities.

Please register. Walk-ins are welcome.

#130   Did someone say “Common Good”? 

This is the age of autonomy. In a time of pandemic, people scorn science and its careful, objective methodology in favor of personal medicine and rumors of ad hoc cures. Everyone is an island and a rock, even in the face of significant numbers of contagious illness and death. Anti-vaxxers, gun rights, bodily integrity, white education, and oddly the rejection of democratic discourse and compromise, are the hallmarks of today’s politics. What happened to the common good, to the meaning of e pluribus unum?

#107 Equality or Merit:  Who should have Power? 

The Class Has had a date change!

The Declaration of Independence says we are all created equal and have an equal say in our leadership and policies. On that principle our democracy is based. But is it really a principle or is it a goal? The American Dream promises that any child can grow up to be president. But from politics to sports we value and reward performance and accomplishment. Did reality teach you that you could be president, or even go to the Olympics? We judge ourselves and our neighbors on how much money we make and where our children go to college. We want our politicians to be smart and rich, and our judges at least be even smarter. So, what matters: equality or merit? Should we aspire to a democracy or a meritocracy?

There has been much discussion of this conundrum lately, notably a book by Michel Sandel, The Tyranny of Merit, and this conflict has possibly grounded our recent nasty political discourse. Will there always be resentment festering within those who have faired less well in pursuit of the American Dream (the “deplorables”), and contempt for those less fortunate by the elite (the “swamp”)? Or is there a common good that ties together our claims of equality and our rewards for merit? Can we avoid a new and more profound cultural civil war?

Harold W. Baillie will examine these pressing issues.

#110 Machiavelli On War     

                      

Machiavelli judged himself to be the first modern (realist) political advisor. Generally, history has agreed with him. As the United States struggles to end an endless war, hard on the heels of losing the war in Vietnam, and facing extreme challenges in the Middle East, the China Sea, and the aftermath of the Afghanistan war, does Machiavelli’s counsel describe our difficulties and assist us in making more prudent decisions and plans as we unavoidably encounter world politics? Join Harold Baillie, Ph.D. as he examines these issues.

Date: Wednesday, October 27
