Knowledge about the mechanisms behind reading difficulties is increasing with new technologies but in our classrooms there remains those 11% of students who present every year with lack of progress in reading and writing development. Standard interventions often don’t assist all of these children.
The key to assisting students with DYSLEXIA is to know what the barriers are for these particular children and what their learning strengths are.
This seminar will explain how the brain works for dyslexic students resulting in strengths and weaknesses, strategies and technologies which can assist them as well as necessary accommodations and curriculum modification to ensure they are not discriminated against.
