During this session on Thursday, July 11th, participants will understand potential comorbid relationships between dyslexia, social-emotional challenges, attention issues, and executive function deficits. The course will conclude with an exploration of the concept of neurodiversity and how it can inform teaching to help support a diverse classroom. 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:

  • learn best practice instructional strategies to support students with dyslexia
  • gain awareness of other learning and social-emotional challenges that can exist alongside dyslexia
  • understand the diverse ways brains function through exploring cultural norms related to disabilities
