DYSLEXIA 101 – WHAT EVERY TEACHER NEEDS TO KNOW
Dyslexia is the most common type of learning disability, and one of the most common causes of reading, writing and spelling difficulties. It exists across a spectrum, ranging from mild to severe, and occurs in people of all backgrounds and intellectual levels. The impact that dyslexia has is different for each person and depends on the severity of the condition and the timeliness and effectiveness of instruction or remediation. This introductory session will help attendees understand what dyslexia is (and what it is not), the signs and symptoms over the ages and stages, and the type of instruction that is essential to their learning.
