Yes, we are devoting enough resources to special education. Since dyslexia is not a visual thing, it is amazing that someone who is both blind and dyslexic is able to relay and explain that information to someone who is not affected by either impairment. The fact that people are able to understand and communicate with one another to determine that one is blind and also dyslexic.
Many people have some for of learning disabilty or another. Even people who are considered very intelegent often struggle in certain areas. What we really need to do is stop calling it special education and start focusing on an educational experience that is tailored to the individual and not the group.
We frequently hear about funding cuts to special education programs. We also hear about discoveries of new conditions that need special education services. Blind dyslexics now join expanded numbers of children diagnosed with ADD, ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome and various levels of autism. As the special education-eligible children increase, funding needs to increase too.
No, we are not devoting enough resources to special education. In fact, we are not devoting enough resources to general education. Education can help better this nation. People with special needs should have access to a quality education in this country and more resources should be provided specifically for that purpose.
