Webinars for Educators

Enroll in our Webinars for Educators to learn effective strategies for supporting your students

Our Spotlight Sessions: Webinars for Educators provide evidence-based effective teaching strategies, tools, and resources for students with language-based learning disabilities, which fall under the broad category of specific learning disabilities (SLD). Our monthly webinars will each feature a new and timely topic, and participants will have the opportunity to earn a one-hour professional development certificate. 

All sessions take place live via Zoom and consist of a one-hour, overview of a specific topic with an opportunity for Q&A at the end. All webinars cost $25, unless otherwise noted. 

This fall, we are excited to announce our Reading Webinar Series! We hope that you will join us for one—or several—of our webinars based on the science of reading. Topics include reading fluency, decoding, dyslexia, and more.

Participants will learn the definition of dyslexia and the impacts of this common specific learning disability (SLD) on the middle and high school classroom. This webinar will also cover best practices to structure content to help high and middle school students manage the increase in pace, volume, and complexity of assignments and content. Additionally, participants will be shown sample lessons and explore ways to break down assignments to best support their student’s learning needs.

11/9 - Building Contextual Reading Fluency Through Phrase-Level Practice

Reading fluency is considered a student’s ability to accurately read connected text with appropriate pacing and prosody (phrasing and expression). Often, students are not able to apply decoding skills in context with automaticity. Phrase-level practice allows students to build word recognition skills and apply them to increasingly larger chunks of text. In this webinar, specific phrase-level strategies and activities will be demonstrated. Implications for all areas of fluency (accuracy, rate, and phrasing/expression) will be discussed.

12/7 - Supporting Students in Developing Automatic Word Recognition

Beth Dietze

Tuesday December 7, 2021, at 4 p.m. Eastern

(Registration will open soon)

This webinar for educators will focus on explaining what orthographic mapping is and why it is important for efficient and effortless word recognition. We’ll explore the skills students need in order to be automatic word readers and learn strategies that support the necessary components of this process.

Also, check out our Resources page for information and strategies to help you structure remote learning to support all students.
