Webinar: Dyslexic Advantage? How New Approaches and Tools are Unlocking Potential (Don Johnson)

Description:

If you work with students who have reading challenges, you probably deal with dyslexia every day. You see students:

  • Struggling with fluency, decoding, and comprehension
  • Falling behind in content-area classes
  • Relying on aides and teachers for reading tasks
  • Bottom line—you see students with a ton of potential, but reading is holding them back.

What can you do about it?

No one can speak to a path to success better than Ptahra Jeppe, a dyslexic reading at a 4th grade level, who ended up graduating from law school with honors (and passed the bar exam!), and Mark Surabian, ATP, founder of AThelp.org. They’ll share powerful approaches and a toolkit to unlock potential in students with dyslexia by:

  • Identifying students with dyslexia and assessing their needs
  • Understanding the firsthand experience of dyslexia and strategies that work
  • Creating an accessible learning environment—including tools for dyslexia (that helped Ptahra)

Get inspired! Come and learn from these amazing two people and see what can make a real difference for your students.

Attendees will receive a certificate of attendance and Participant Resource Folder with extensive resources on apps, extensions, tools and technologies to add to your Dyslexia Toolkit!
