sponsor your local school teachers

Understanding students with dyslexia is one of the most difficult apsects of teaching. Students are often smart with above-average IQ's, analytical, creative, and contributing class members. But, they may perform below grade level in reading, writing and spelling. This is very confusing to teachers. They don't always know how to teach these bright students. With the program PARTNER IN EDUCATION you will be providing a free copy of The Human Side of Dyslexia to teachers in your local school district.

Read the download PDF article from Fortune magazine "The Dyslexic CEO" May 2002, written by Betty Morris and ask yourself the question . . What would the business world look like without Kinkos, Cisco, Schwab,Virgin Atlantic Airways and Citi Bank if these CEO's had not overcome their dyslexia? Charles Schwab, David Murdock, CEO Dole Food Company, Richard Branson, Founder & CEO, Virgin Atlantic Airways and Paul J. Orfalea, Founder & CEO, Kinko's, John Chambers, CEO of Cisco, all have dyslexia.

The San Jose Mercury and Monterey Herald published articles highlighting interviewees from the book.

Dear Household Finance Corporation,

I would like to take this time to thank you for your recent donation of the books on dyslexia. My teaching staff has very little training or knowledge of dyslexia. This is truly a gift for them. Please let it be known that you are impacting students lives by your donation.

God Bless You,
Rosie Alvarez, Principal, Roosevelt School, Salinas

From: David Becker   To: Dole Food Company

Sirs - Thank you for the distribution of The Human Side of Dyslexia. We just received and I've had a chance to read a few of the interviews. Not only is it interesting reading, but I believe it will help my staff with their understanding of the unseen difficulties some children encounter. Dole Foods also sponsored the special assembly "5 a Day" to remind students of the importance of good nutrition through good eating habits - the live theater presentation was excellent. A big Park Oaks' THANK YOU to Dole for their support of education.
