  3. The classic warning signs in children
  4. Why most dyslexic children don't qualify for special ed
  5. Research-based  "best practices"  to improve spelling, reading, and writing
  6. Why tutoring alone is not enough  --  and much more!!!  

  

Who should attend?

Parents who are trying to determine if dyslexia is their child's issue, or who know it is and need to understand all the areas that it will impact, including math and memorization

Teachers who don't understand why children who can't master spelling and struggle with reading don't qualify for special education services

Reading Specialists who need to know how to informally identify which of their struggling readers may have dyslexia -- and what to do to help them

Principals who want to start early intervention programs to achieve the goal of No Child Left Behind -- that every student is reading at grade level by the end of third grade

Resource Specialists who need to know how to close the gap for students who have a learning disability

School Psychologists who want to learn to distinguish dyslexia from other learning disabilities

Speech Language Therapists who are often the first specialists to work with dyslexic children because of their difficulty articulating R's and L's, M's and N's, and S, SH and CH

Pediatricians who are often asked by parents to test their children for dyslexia

Counselors and Psychologists who often deal with the lifelong emotional damage that undetected dyslexia and academic failure causes
