This week, I am joined by Ms. Kate Witt, a college student at the University of Alabama. Kate speaks about her learning difficulties with processing disorders and dyslexia while attending Catholic schools and now at the University of Alabama. Kate discusses how she compensated at an early age before being diagnosed and offers strategies for teachers to help students like herself. She comments how her disability is a “gift from God” and states “I’m so glad I’m dyslexic!” Kate is a remarkable example of what can happen when students with disabilities receive the right supports to succeed in Catholic school and how they can translate to the present day.
