Speaking at a press conference in advance of the learning disorders forum to be held on January 30th, the Grand Duchess talked about how she was unsure of where to turn after her son's diagnosis and how SCAP helped. Additionally, she noted the importance of highlighting the learning strengths and unique learning styles of dyslexic individuals and avoiding rhetoric that treats dyslexia as a handicap.
