Liz, this is an excellent example of the service you provide. You found something questionable and, after researching it well, reported the bunk. Thanks.

Should you be quoting Larry Silver -"In summary, there is no current evidence supporting the theory of vestibular dysfunction nor supporting the proposed treatment approaches" this Article is from Spring 2001!! Things have moved on considerably from there.

To Whom It May Concern:
It is interesting to see comments made regarding an article published in the Herald-Citizen over a year ago. I am no longer affiliated with neither Sylvan Learning Center nor Cumberland Early Scholars Academy. While employed at Sylvan Learning Center, like many franchises, we are given material to use for public services and advertising. Some of the articles published in the Herald Citizen were used for this purpose. We are given full rights to any article given and approved by Sylvan Learning Center Corp. and we are also given the right to use it under our own name as being a director of the center. The article in question would be one of those articles. Many of the articles placed in the Herald Citizen were my own, however this particular one was not. This article was prepared by Sylvan Learning Center therefore rights were given to Sylvan to use the information. I resent the assumption that not only had I plagiarized the article, I resent the fact that you also assumed that my knowledge of Dyslexia was lacking. I have spent the last 8 years of my life researching and living the life of being a parent of a Dyslexic child. Not only did I live it at home every day- my job consisted of helping dyslexic and other learning disabilities (your preferred word) every day. The school- Cumberland Early Scholars Academy- was created and designed for students with learning differences- whatever they may be. The curriculum and design used at the time I was principal was chosen and researched carefully and implemented by a fantastic group of very talented teachers. The school was created and designed with my own son as my motivation . Words cannot describe how much he gained from this environment and curriculum the time that he was there. I wish that all students had the opportunity that he had so that they too can learn in a way that they learn best. I credit you with the time and effort that it took to research the article, however, if you are as passionate about students with learning difficulties as I am, it would seem to me that you would have at least contacted me with your questions before slandering my name, the name of Sylvan and especially the name of Cumberland Early Scholars Academy.

I stand by what I wrote. An ethical author reveals her sources. Ms. Harrison didn't say, "this material was supplied to me by Sylvan" and Sylvan didn't let its franchisees know "this material originally published in an article in AWAKE! magazine, in the print version of August 8, 1996" or "this material is adapted from Gerard Sagmiller's site, "Dyslexia My Life", at

It's called academic integrity, and it is what I try to model.

Thank you for providing the perspective. I just read a part of the article, so I don't know much what to say. Good luck for the new member!
