Ben Shifrin, Head of The Jemicy School, in Owings Mills, MD, has been inducted into the International Dyslexia Association’s Hall of Fame. Frankly, I had no idea there was such a Hall of Fame. For me, this is another chance to bring recognition to what I’ve always thought of as a great school for kids who have learning disabilities, particularly dyslexia. I’ve not been to the newer High School but have spent time at the Lower and Middle School. Jemicy School does educate the whole child, in terms of developing strengths as well as remediate weaknesses, and as a result, kids just seem to feel good while they’re getting the help they need.
