This online workshop is intended to provide an overview of Dyslexia.

Dyslexia, the most recognized of reading problems, is a neurological disorder that is often characterized by difficulties in recognizing and decoding words, leading to lower comprehension and fluency. Although there is no exact count, it is estimated that one in ten people may be afflicted with some form of dyslexia.

Governor Christie signed legislation that prominently recognizes dyslexia in state statute and regulation, making it a requirement for districts to deal with this disability. A definition of dyslexia must now be specifically written into special education code and a yearly 2-hour professional development requirement for dyslexia is now mandated for all teachers in grades pre-K through grade 3, special education, reading and ESL teachers, reading specialists, learning disabilities teacher consultants, and speech-language specialists.

This two-hour webinar will provide participating administrators, pre-K to 3 educators, Special Education supervisors, and Child Study Team members with detailed information about this legislation, citing the specificity and requisites that impact the governance and operation of all school districts in New Jersey. The impact that the law will have on special education programs, as well as the specific components that must be included in the required training, will be reviewed during the online course.

Students are all different and all learn differently. "One size fits all" is not a motto used in education. As teachers, we must determine what works best for our learners. There are many factors that need to be considered when teachers determine what to teach, how to teach it, and how students should perform - all based on the students themselves. In order to reach all learners, differentiation needs to take place with respect to content, process, and product according to learning styles, levels, and interests. This workshop provides how this can be done and resources to support teachers in doing so. It also focuses specifically on technology tools to address the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners in our classes.

Participants will understand "what to do" in order to differentiate the content, process, and product for students and "how to do it" with respect to specific instructional strategies. In addition, participants will learn about their learning style, how to assess their students and explore technology tools to support the visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners in their class. Educators will leave the workshop able to create a technology-infused, differentiated lesson ready to be immediately implemented.
