[Podcast Episode] Mandy Melville, President of Creative Language-Based Learning and Lindamood-Bell Learning Center Parent
Mandy Melville is the parent of a child with dyslexia. During school holidays the family traveled from their home in Jamaica to receive specialized instruction at the Lindamood-Bell Learning Center in Miami. On one of their trips, her son asked, ‘Mummy, why am I the only child that has to go away for extra lessons?’” From that point, Melville became determined to bring the learning programs used by Lindamood-Bell to Jamaica where more children could benefit. Hear about how the community came together to fund and support efforts to increase literacy and math competency for Jamaican students with special learning needs. Learn more about the literacy initiative, including student results, Professional Development Reaches More Teachers in Jamaica.
