Tulsa Center To Help Students With Disabilities During Possible Teacher Walkout

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

With public schools across the state shutting down for a possible teacher walkout, occupational therapists say the time away from school can be detrimental to students with learning disabilities.

The Dyslexia Center of Tulsa says children with dyslexia need continuous learning and with the walkout coming up, that could put those students in a tough position.

Dyslexia is when adults and kids have trouble processing what they hear, read or even following directions and research shows 1 in 5 people have it.

The center says they'll offer reading and handwriting help during the walkout for students with dyslexia.

With possibly more time out of school, Dr. Penny Stack, who runs the center, says it's important for these children to keep studying and get help so they don't fall behind.

"The more time that's put between them and that strategy and their implementation of it, if you will, or them using it for school can cause that gap again," said Dr. Penny Stack

You can call the Dyslexia Center of Tulsa at 918-313-5518 if you want to learn more about its services.
