This article made me remember my childhood, as I remember having learned to fully read until second grade. Although I was never diagnosed with a learning disability, it was well understood among teachers and my parents that my delay in reading fluently in English had to do with my fluency in the language. I grew up speaking, reading, and writing in Spanish so in school, everything had to be transitioned to English. This article reminds me of the importance to be cognizant in difference among students since all students learn at various levels, however, also to remember that some students may in fact have a learning disability that has not been identified. As a school counselor, it will be my responsibility to work with teachers, students, and parents in identifying students who may need to be placed in special education.
