This presentation is a comprehensive and engaging learning opportunity designed to provide Pre-K to 12th- grade educators, special educators, administrators, and paraprofessionals with a deeper understanding of dyslexia, a specific learning disability that affects reading, writing, and spelling skills. This session aims to equip participants with valuable knowledge, strategies, and tools to create an inclusive and supportive learning environment for all students, especially those with dyslexia. 


This learning session will shatter the misconception that dyslexia only affects young learners. As students progress through their academic years, some individuals with dyslexia might have remained undetected or struggled without proper intervention. In this session, we will delve into the complexities of dyslexia in older students, shedding light on its diverse manifestations and impact on their reading abilities. 

This training will be held on December 5, 2023 from 8:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. at the ROE #3 Professional Development Center. Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m. The cost to attend this event is $50/person and lunch will be provided. Each participant will receive 6.0 PD hours.
