Dyslexia affects 1 in 10 individuals, many of whom remain undiagnosed and receive little or no intervention services.
Dyslexia is the most common cause of reading, writing, and spelling difficulties, and teachers are often at a loss for ideas to make learning easier for students. In this session we will address the myths and truths surrounding dyslexia. Instructors will participate in an activity to help understand how it feels to have dyslexia. More importantly, participants will learn instructional strategies they can use and learning strategies that students can use to lessen the impact of dyslexia on learning.
