Understanding Dyslexia Facilitated Online Course
Would you like to better understand dyslexia and how it affects your students’ reading ability? This facilitated online course is just what you need!
There are many reasons why students have difficulty with reading and writing skills. For 10 - 15% of students the cause is dyslexia, a neurobiological learning disability that is characterized by difficulties with accurate or fluent word recognition and poor spelling. 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.
About the Format
This is a facilitated online course that combines 6 hours of online course time with two, 75-minute meetings. You will complete the first half of the online course and participate in the 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.
