Abstract

*** THIS WORKSHOP REQUIRES AN ADDITIONAL REGISTRATION FEE ***

This interactive session is designed to help educators understand firsthand the reading and writing challenges often experienced by students with dyslexia in their classroom. These students will not "catch up" without direct explicit interventions and evidence-based supports. This session will provide an in-depth exploration of dyslexia, covering early warning signs and characteristics; information on assessment and diagnosis; and strategies for effective remediation and accommodation.
