"If we could cut off the tops of our heads, I bet our brains would look different." This was a profound thought for eight-year-old Jeanine, who was comparing her struggle to read with her classmate who seemed to pick it up so easily. But it wasn't until much later in life when a college professor told her she was dyslexic that she learned just how true it was. Their brains did look very different. Jeanine's struggle to learn to read and write is felt by one in five children, but the good news is that there are solutions. In What's RIGHT with Me?, author Joan Stambaugh reveals the answers that come with over eighty years of studies and research. Stories like Jeanine's will make you laugh, cry, and wonder why there continues to be such a shroud of mystery surrounding dyslexia. Their stories will give you a glimpse into the amazing way their brains process, affording them amazing strengths. Their stories will inspire and motivate us for positive change, as well as guide those of us in the trenches---students, parents, and teachers. As we look at what is right, rather than what is wrong, it becomes evident that ability describes better than disability.
