In Search of Air: Growing Up Dyslexic

A week ago, I volunteered at the Seacoast Repertory Theatre to usher for an unknown—to me—visiting speaker, and I was blown away by her message and performance. Below is an excerpt from that message and performance.


"Dyslexic Lida Winfield is an innovative and accomplished dancer, choreographer, spoken word artist and educator. Her artistic practice is inextricably linked to her role as an educator. Lida is dedicated to using the performing arts to move herself and others forward intellectually, developmentally" . . . [more at TEDx website]

Hi there Dane!

Thank you for recommending this TED talk. It is very impactful, not only as an educator but as a mother of a learning different child with dyslexia. I cried and laughed but most cried. I know this is how my daughter views the challenges of reading and writing and this talk is a beautiful reminder to be her biggest advocate and supporter. All my best :) -Mary Shockley
