Jean Armus, an Ohio educator who worked to dispel the stigma of dyslexia and develop teaching techniques to help people overcome the learning disability, died Saturday at age 77. Armus began studying dyslexia in the 1960s, when reading problems were often diagnosed as laziness. In the 1970s, she opened a tutoring service to help children with dyslexia and train teachers.
