Throughout, participants will also learn how to use research-based best practices and differentiated instruction to help support students in their setting.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • describe the causes of reading challenges for individuals with dyslexia
  • understand the neurological research and theory behind dyslexia
  • learn best practice instructional strategies to support students with dyslexia
