Fordham Conversations
Tapping into the Fordham University community to discuss and uncover issues that impact our world locally and beyond.
The International Dyslexia Association defines dyslexia as "a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin."  But members of a boarding school for dyslexic students in Dutchess County, New York don’t use the term “disability.”   They prefer to call it a “way to learn differently.”  On this week’s Fordham Conversations we discuss the issue of dyslexia with three people who have first-hand knowledge of the condition. Fordham Alumn Kevin Pendergast is the Headmaster of the Kildonan School, a boarding school that empowers students with dyslexia. Dave Flink is the Executive Director of Eye-to-Eye, a national grass roots mentoring program. August Hunt is in his senior year at Kildonan.
