                                     Introduction of Keynote
                              Janet Jones, SCBIDA member, Fellow AOGPE
9:10-10:30

                              Jim & Bernice Morgan
Jim is severely dyslexic. Bernice has learning differences. The oldest of their four
children is ADHD; the other three are dyslexic. The Morgans are a good argument for
the widely held belief that dyslexia and learning differences run in families. What makes
the Morgans interesting, however, is not that they are all alternative learners. Rather, it
is the grace and good humor with which they manage the stresses, pressures, and
conflicts of their different learning styles.

The Morgans have much to teach all of us. They share their story, generously and
courageously.
