Dr. Chris Menton -019

A conversation between Jordan Rich and Dr. Chris Menton, criminal justice professor and former program director at Roger Williams University School of Continuing Studies.  Jordan and Chris discuss the impact of dyslexia and other learning disabilities on members of the prison population.  It’s an under-reported problem but there are ways to help deal with it.  Professor Menton has published a number of research articles and has focused extensively on criminal justice, public safety, corrections and law enforcement training. Chris also discusses his experience as one of Dr. Gertrude Webb’s first students at Curry College’s PAL Program (Program for Advancement of Learning).  Chris is a shining example of someone who has dealt successfully with the challenges of dyslexia.
