Dr. Sylvia Onesti Richardson, the eighth President of the Orton Dyslexia Society, now the International Dyslexia Association, was described by Rosemary Bowler upon her presentation of the Samuel T. Orton Award in 1992 to Sylvia as "perhaps the most articulate, traveled, and acclaimed spokesperson for dyslexia in the nation." Sylvia's involvement with the education, speech-language and medical communities helped to cross-fertilize the cutting-edge research with which she and other members of the Society were engaged, thus helping to disseminate this critical information. She has written or helped to write over 100 publications and has received honors and awards from a number of organizations. Having been active in so many organizations supporting learning disabilities, why has the Orton Society, now the International Dyslexia Association, been so fortunate to have secured Dr. Richardson's devotion to its mission? In this video Karen Dakin, Editor of The Examiner, and Secretary of IDA, interviews Dr. Richardson who explains why she found her home with the IDA and, with her usual wit and intelligence, so much more about her remarkable career.
