Karen Jensen, TLT wrote an interesting article about the research she did to find books about the subject of dyslexia. Here's the link:
In her research for books with dyslexic characters she found a few books but they they were mostly for young readers. She found very few for teens. She lists some of the books and is working to discover more books, especially YA stories, with main characters that have dyslexia to add to her list. I left a comment about my forth coming novel. Maybe Karen Jensen will be interested in Gabe.
I hope people will understand about people that have Dyslexia and not laugh at them or bully them.
We still have National Bullying Prevention Month. Here are some suggestions I found for the week of October 21st. From the National Bullying Prevention Month Stomp Out Bullying site.
For students: If you see someone eating alone in the cafeteria, ask them to eat with you.
If someone is just watching a school activity or something after school invite them to join in.
If you're an adult and at work, do the same. Ask them if you can eat lunch with them or invite them to eat with you. Few people enjoy eating alone. Be friends.
Send a note to a social media friend saying to have a good day, or something to let them know you're thinking about them.
I'm sure you can think of some great ways to show a person they are important and not alone.
Boy! October is a busy month.
