About This Course

This professional development provides the background knowledge about dyslexia that all elementary teachers need in order to understand why students with dyslexia have difficulty with reading and how to support them in the classroom.

 Facilitated Online Format: This is a facilitated online course that combines 6 hours of online course time with two, 1-hour meetings. You will complete the first half of the online course and participate in the first virtual-live session, then you will complete the rest of the online course and participate in the final virtual-live session. The online course is asynchronous -- you may log in at any time to work through the course at your own pace. If for some reason you miss the facilitated sessions, they will be recorded and saved for one week for later viewing. You will have access to the online course for a year.

Training Topics:

  • Dyslexia defined
  • Dyslexia and learning to read
  • The Reading Brain
  • Screening for dyslexia
  • Suggestions for structured literacy instruction: sounds, sound-symbol correspondences, syllable types, morphemes

Who should participate? Grades K-3 educators who are identified to become a Dyslexia Designee for their school. Any AZ educator interested in better understanding why students with dyslexia struggle and how to support them.

Course Schedule

The facilitated meetings are scheduled for February 28 and March 7, 2022, from 3:30 PM to 4:30 PM AZ time.  (Plan to complete the first half of the course by February 28 and the last half of the course by March 7)
