December XXth, MMXV
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
Congressman Bruce Westerman of Arkansas steps up to the podium & speaks about dyslexia. A definite huge deficit comprehension disorder that affects many students. I myself have Aspergers Syndrome or high-functioning autism & cannot count in numbers past the number XXX, as a result, I do my counting & dating in Roman Nvmerals & then convert back the solutions to numbers.
"It is estimated dyslexia affects one out of six school children."
