In this 1-day workshop, participants will explore the official definition of dyslexia and will come to better understand how the impacts of this common specific learning disability (SLD) can affect students in the middle and high school classrooms. Participants will also learn research-based best practices to help these students manage the increase in pace, volume, and complexity of assignments and content. Additionally, participants will view sample lessons and explore ways to break down assignments to best support their students’ learning needs.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the causes of reading challenges for individuals with dyslexia
  • Understand other learning and social-emotional challenges that can exist alongside dyslexia 
  • Employ instructional strategies to support students with dyslexia
