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.

Online workshop access will be granted after ETTC Hours approval or payment is received. Please contact the SRI&ETTC at 609-626-3850 regarding this matter.

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.

Legislation on Dyslexia signed in August 2014 prominently recognized Dyslexia in state statute and regulation, mandating a requirement for districts to pro-actively deal with this disability. A definition of Dyslexia is now 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.

Participants should already have had a preliminary workshop on Dyslexia such that they have a general knowledge about the legislation, definition, warning signs, and characteristics of Dyslexia. This two-hour training will provide participants with information about specific teaching strategies and techniques used to work with students with Dyslexia, as well as additional information about its characteristics, use of technology, and screening.

This one hour webinar of the very successful and popular workshop will provide SPICE training demonstrating how to identify and apply skills needed to teach and enhance writing abilities at the elementary and middle school level. Language Arts teachers, special education teachers and ELL teachers will learn a variety of techniques designed through years of practical use. SPICE strategies have proven successful in improving state assessment scores.

After a review of numerous compositional risks, participants will learn and practice unique assessment tools, skill application strategies for all prompts, test timing awareness and encouragement tips. The focus will be on teaching students to simply "learn how to write" for any type of assignment or prompt. Writing with SPICE builds lifelong student skills, makes both the teaching and learning of writing skills less stressful, and can immediately be implemented in the classroom.

The Writing with Spice webinar is presented by Mike Devono.
Mr. Devono is a former teacher and author of Teaching Writing with Spice, the definitive text to identify and apply the skills needed to track and enhance writing abilities.

Scratch is a free, web-based coding application developed at MIT that can be used for teaching all levels of coding. It is particularly useful as an introductory application. Scratch uses drag-and-drop blocks instead of type-written code to teach the concepts, logic, creativity and problem-solving of coding without being bogged down with tedious syntax. Its simplicity makes it easy for you, as a facilitator, to include coding into your curriculum. This workshop will provide the strategies you'll need to get started and to get your students coding. No prior knowledge of coding is necessary to participate.

Cost: $58.00 or 2 ETTC Hours. For information on membership, call the SRI&ETTC at 609-626-3850.
