A Message From Your Seminar Leader
Helping students who struggle can seem daunting on the best of days. Add to it distance learning and the challenge has just increased more than we can explain. Fortunately, research clearly shows us how reading works in the brain, why some children develop reading impairments and dyslexia, and most importantly, what we can do to support and accelerate the learning of our grades 6-12 students who have or may have dyslexia whether we are teaching from home or from our classrooms.
I have designed this dynamic day to equip you with practical tips and ideas that focus on learning strategies and classroom activities that you can use in your classroom as well as to support students when they are in their content area classes. All the knowledge, strategies, activities, and free technology tools you gather in this seminar will help you teach and empower students with dyslexia to be more successful readers, writers, and spellers whether you are working in-person or virtually. And because I know firsthand that teachers are some of the busiest people in the world, everything I present is practical and time-efficient. I'll share with you proven approaches to tackling your most difficult instructional concerns about your dyslexic students; approaches that will benefit not only your students with dyslexia but all students.
Working with students with dyslexia and their teachers has been my passion and the focus of my career. Every day you help dozens of students achieve success. I look forward to sharing with you what I've learned about the teaching of reading so all your students, including those with dyslexia, can be even more successful. I look forward to sharing a day of learning with you.
P.S. The job you do is so very important. Investing a day with me will give you the knowledge, strategies, and activities that can make a real difference in the reading, writing, and spelling lives of your students with dyslexia as they navigate learning in-person or virtually.
