    In this week's episode, you'll learn:

    • Why challenges associated with dyslexia do not have to be a life-long struggle

    • The neuroscience of learning

    Episode Highlight

    "We've always known that the brain could change, and the marvelous thing about neuroplasticity is that it's creating new connections with our neurons. That's what we do when we do therapy and when we work with people who have learning issues also. This gives us hope that change can always happen."
