Event description

Description

Join us for a hands-on simulation designed to increase awareness of the difficulties and frustrations that people with dyslexia and other language-based learning differences encounter daily. Participants will be guided through learning tasks commonly encountered in the classroom or workplace. These activities will be followed by a group discussion focusing on experiences shared and lessons learned, as well as practical tips, accommodations, and interventions for the classroom.

The dyslexia simulation will be led by Jennifer Hasser, M.Ed. Jennifer is a nationally recognized advocate, author, and trainer in the field of reading. She is the Founder and Executive Director of Syllables Learning Center, where she has helped thousands of students acquire language skills. She is also the Executive Director of Kendore Learning, an IDA and IMSLEC accredited training program for educators. Jennifer is a regular presenter at reading and dyslexia conferences and serves as an educational consultant to schools across the nation. She was President of the International Dyslexia Association's Georgia Branch and is a founding member of Decoding Dyslexia Georgia.
