Understanding Dyslexia (Live Virtual Training)

Keys to Literacy Event

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 struggle 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 struggle 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, chat, and Google shared documents.
