Richard Collins, director ofBrehm Preparatory School in Carbondale, interviews Diana Hanbury King, a pioneer in special education and the founder of both the Kildonan School and the Dunnebeck Camp for dyslexic students. King recently visited SIUC to help train educators on how to work with dyslexic children, emphasizing that early intervention and one-on-one time between teachers and students are critical to the success of children struggling with this learning disorder. Over the course of her 60-year career, King has met and worked with many experts in the field and describes some of the programs developed to meet the needs of dyslexic students. She also shares how technology has changed the face of special education and encourages greater collaboration between universities, colleges, elementary schools, and parents to meet the educational needs of children with learning disabilities.
