Pioli on learning disabilities

2

The first step is recognition. Often, players will acknowledge their issue in questionnaires. "The kids generally will tell you if they have a learning disability," Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli says. "That’s generally a good sign, because if they acknowledge it, it shows a willingness to deal with it. Then we can all work towards the same goal and enhance the chances for long term success. You have an open mind about it and put a structure in place." Pioli didn’t hesitate to select defensive tackle Jerrell Powe(notes), who reportedly has ADD and dyslexia, in the sixth round of the draft. The Chiefs feel comfortable they know what they have in Powe.
