Mary Zimnik, Editor 51213225 4-:+L-I-' 3212123252 .-xl: THE SCENARIO: Eckerd College, some AuTumn Ternu A wealThy, male freshman arrives on campus and is greeTed aT regisTraTion by upperclassmen, sTaff, faculfy, and whaTever. He's made To feel very welcome, very happy, desplTe The facT ThaT he's so far away from home. He seTTles inTo his dorm room and aTTends his flrsT col lege class. He's very ex- ciTed. He likes his classmaTes and hls menTor. He breezes Through his class. HBoy, ls This easy,n he Thinks. There is a lcT of discussion. Usual ly one can bul lshlT Through IT even if The reading isn'T done. BuT, Then The professor asks The freshman To wrlTe an essay on The class subjecT Thusfar. The freshman Turns ln his paper and receives lT back The nexT day -- F. He's glven The chance To Try again -- F. He geTs a D for his final grade in AuTumn Term He was superior in class discussion So, whaT's This guy's problem? ls he lazy? ls he spoiled? ls he sTupid? No, This guy has a special problem. BuT, no one Takes noTlce. He barely makes lT Through his freshman and sophomore years wiTh an equal share of D's and F's. He's superior in discussion. Then ln The second semesTer his junior year, The ls cracked and one more F means you're ouT. So, he's ouT. This freshman, so happy, so welcome rode Through almosT Three years of college. BuT, now hels gone -- soon To be forgoTTen by Eckerd STill no one nofices his problem. So, whaT is his problem? This young man is dyslecTic. iDyslexia ls an lnborn condifion ThaT limiTs abiliTy To process re- ceived informaTion inTo language. More commonly a dyslecTic is known To reverse leTTers and numbers and even leave ouT whole phrases. A dyslecTic may under- sTand someThing by ear, buT may noT be able To com- prehend Through reading or copy The same Through wriTing. Dyslexia isn'T rare. IT effecTs 10- 121 of The U.S. popul aTlon.J This young man is dyslecTic and he jusT spenT iexcuse me, hls parenTs jusT spenT, wlTh cash? almosT Three years facing one failure afTer anoThen Now hls parenTs are angry because he failed. So, why did he ever Try college? WhaT could he possibly have hoped To gain? Surely dyslexia ls someThing ThaT handicaps someone To such an exTenT ThaT They would never survive in college. AfTer all, dyslexia ls noT curable. AcTually, he's excepTlonally lnTelliqenT. BUT, his lnTeIligence is Trapped inside hls mind as if iT were bound in a cage. whaf is Trapping his mind is someThing ouT of his conTrol. Now, all he's lefT wiTh is an incredible frusTraTion and lnsecuriTy abouT his own abiliTies. 4 whip me Q:2:i:5:i:-:-:-:-12:52:13 4 -:-:-1-2--14-:-:-:Qu ...izzizzsxf So, There you have iT. The perfecT reason why This young man should noT aTTend a college. Why, iT will evenTually eiTher drive him ouT Through failure or drive him crazy. You see, college isn'T a place for anyone whose noT normal. If you have a learning dlsablliTy, you don'T belong in college. WRONG!!! There's no reason why Eckerd cannoT help The many people wiTh learning dlsabiliTies ThaT walk Through iTs doors, even lf lTs jusT direcTing To a nearby dyslecTic insTiTuTe. There's no excuse for a small lnsTlTuTion To permiT such negligence. ThaT young male wenT Through hell because hls mind was Trapped by his learning dlsablliTy and all he could accomplish was failure And now he can'T come back because The sysfem makes no room for failures, deserving or noT. He's been driven ouT of ThaT sysTem because he could noT operaTe in IT under Nnormaln sTandards. BuT, noT only was The sysTem desTlned To run againsT him, his own lack of confidence ln hls abiliTies and The consTanT frusTraTion he's under would bury him and evenTually he would give up. So, if a dyslecTic finds his way Tc a college he has Two choices. Gne, he will evenTually fail ouT or, Two, he will give up. ls This To be permiTTed To conTinue when The answer To The problem is so simple? Yes, simple. Here's a possible soluTion: FirsT, screen freshmen and Transfers Coming im A severe case of dyslexia cannoT be impossible To deTecT if The sTudenT knows ThaT The college ls Trying To help. Second, educaTe The faculfy abouT how To deal wiTh dyslecTics. Dyslexia, in any of iTs many forms is noT curable. However, lnformaTion can be drilled inTo memory. lf noThing else, The faculTy could be made aware of how To deTecT The suspicion of dyslexia Then aT leasT direcT The STUGSPT To an insTlTuTe in The area iTampai ThaT is special ly equipped To deal wlTh This disease. There are many famous, brlghT, and amblTlous gygleqfigg in our risTQry: AgeTha ChrisTie, Thomas Edison, Woodrow Wilson, and many more. Do we have The righT, as an insTiTuTlon of learning To Throw away a mind sTarving To learn?
