What is dyslexia, how does it affect learning to read, and what do educators need to know?

This webinar will delve into the science behind how reading develops in children with dyslexia, identify proven strategies for instruction and intervention, and explore how some school-based practices for diagnosing and addressing reading difficulties have led to inequities in which children receive support.

As one of the panelists, a reading researcher, says, the field’s knowledge about dyslexia has something to offer everyone—from teachers to parents to those with other types of reading challenges.
