Nate slinked lower in his chair and pulled his hat tight. “Please, he thought, don’t call on me to read out loud. The other kids already think I am so stupid.” Nate was in the 6th grade, but reading at a 2nd grade level. As a result, learning was hard and Nate was miserable.
The school district had been providing
many hours a week of special education and related services for Nate
since kindergarten, but he had made minimal progress. School officials
said this was to be expected, after all, “Nate has dyslexia.”
