Event description

Description

This presentation will discuss the barriers children encounter while learning to read as well as helpful strategies that can be used at home and in the classroom.

Presenter:

Jennings is a Fellow in the Academy of Orton Gillingham Practitioners and Educators and a Certified Trainer of Orton Gillingham/Multisensory Math. After graduating from Vanderbilt with a Masters in Special Education in 2005, Jennings worked for ten years as a classroom teacher working with children with special needs including students with cognitive delay, autism, dyslexia, behavioral disorders, and language disorders. She has worked at The Marcus Autism Center and The Schenck School.

In her private tutoring practice, Jennings works with students ages 5-18 of all abilities to develop reading, math, written expression, and language skills. She has over 4,000 hours of experience working individually with students with learning differences.

Jennings volunteered her time with The International Dyslexia Association-Georgia Branch, serving as the chair for the Dyslexia Dash from 2013-2016. She is the 2018 recipient of the IDA-GA Outstanding Service Award.

Jennings is also trained in RAVE-O and Lindamood-Bell Visualizing and Verbalizing.

Outreach events such as this provide opportunities for individuals to connect in person with parents, educators, and others interested in learning and engaging in discussions about dyslexia and related topics. Thank you to Mr. Greg Hutchinson of Hairston Library and Ms. Florine Wood and for helping us coordinate this library event.
