Live, Virtual Professional Development
Would you like to better understand dyslexia and how it affects your students’ reading ability? This one-day seminar 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. Virtual-Live Format: The Keys trainer will use Zoom video conferencing to deliver this training in an interactive format using features such as breakout rooms and chat. Sessions are not recorded - attendance only in real time.
