49 states have passed dyslexia legislation that mandates screening, intervention, or teacher training. While the spotlight on dyslexia has grown, so have misconceptions and myths about how to support students who struggle to read.
Join us for an in-depth discussion about what the research says and leave with information about how to choose an evidence-based approach that supports reading success for all students.
We will discuss:
- The complicated history of the term “dyslexia” in the field of education
- How the research informs what to teach as well as how to teach students with dyslexia
- Tips for becoming a smart consumer of assistive tools for students with dyslexia
- Best practices for effective dyslexia screening, progress monitoring, and multi-tiered instruction that incorporates the Science of Reading
