Ms. I February 27, 2010 at 9:34 am I teach technology to students with dyslexia and aspergers and I see that are truly gifted. From my experience with this population, I believe that if these students are given the right opportunity they can excel. I would like to share a brief story with you and your readers to illustrate this point. A student joined my class mid year and was able to design his own computer game in two weeks. After questioning the student, I discovered he did not have knowledge of the application or programming, as he stated he “just figured it out.” He then told me he loved my class because this had been the first time he was asked to do a project like this. As in this case, too often, the outside world can’t see past the student’s disability long enough to recognize that, in reality, it is an ability.
