A private school in Germantown, Tenn., provides specialized instruction for students with dyslexia and other reading disabilities. Educators at The Bodine School use teaching methods that include reinforcing the learning of vowel sounds by having students repeat the sound, draw it in the air and write it on paper. "With good remediation, [students] can actually learn to reprocess words and use the part of the brain the nondyslexics do," the school's executive director said.
