Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. In the classroom, dyslexia may be the reason a student falls behing in reading, spelling and/or writing. This workshop will be of value to Pre-k to 12th grade classroom teachers, ELL teachers, special education teachers, tutors and parents.
In this lively workshop, participants will learn the answers to these questions:
- What is dyslexia? How prevalent is the condition?
- What does it feel like to have dyslexia?
- How do I know if a student is exhibiting signs of dyslexia?
- What prerequiste skills are necessary to become a fluent reader?
- Are there other learning differences that can hamper a dyslexic student's ability to read?
- What is meant by Structured Literacy?
- Why are multisensory strategies based on the Orton-Gillingham Approach so important?
- How do I help dyslexic students in my classroom?
Because we stand behind the research that shows hands-on learning is effective learning, this workshop will be engaging and participatory. Attendees will be “students” and will actively take part in the activities and games we will introduce.
