This workshop will take a closer look into understanding, reaching, and teaching students with reading difficulties that might be signs of dyslexia.

    Day 2-Level II: Let's go deeper! Why is reading and writing so hard for these students? What makes the greatest impact after a student seems to know letters and sounds? Most of the instructional time in this training will be hands-on strategy development of effective instruction for students who show common characteristics of at-risk readers and writers.

    Day 3-Level III: What can you do to address the needs of at-risk readers/writers? This training will provide a closer look into understanding, reaching and teaching students with reading difficulties that might be signs of dyslexia. Active participation will be expected as participants practice instructional strategies for evidence-based effective reading/writing lessons.

    Day 4-Level IV: Most of the instructional time in this training will be hands-on strategy development to aid students who show common characteristics of dyslexia, as well as networking time to share strategies that work.
