Continuing our investigation into Dyslexia in education with special guest, Brendan Morrissey.
In this episode of Mentorships in Education, we welcome Brendan Morrissey. Mentorships in Education is brought to you by Just Education, LLC and is hosted by Judith Epstein. Judith has a Master's degree in Education with a concentration in Language Acquisition. She is certified in special education with post-graduate coursework and professional development in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Social Thinking, and Collaborative & Proactive Solutions and Acceptance and Commitment therapy (ACT). Judith created Just Education, LLC to compile a free resource library for mentors of students who struggle on a wide variety of topics that are all related to education and student success.
Brendan Morrissey has been dubbed “the serial entrepreneur” and for good reason. Dyslexic himself, Brendan learned that his son, at the age of six, was also Dyslexic. Searching for materials and information, Brendan began to develop a support structure for the Dyslexic community.
He received an award from Microsoft for his important developments in technology that continue to evolve and foster connections that directly support those affected by and supporting the Dyslexic community.
Some of his contributions that support Mentors and students in the Dyslexic community are iDyslexic; eschools, and wonde. Other contributions are: Rascal Reads (available only in Ireland at the moment), ProTunes, QuizApp, Mishon, DataEgg, and Safe Pal
