Understanding Dyslexia Workshop
Dyslexia is the most prevalent and most researched of all learning disabilities. It also is one of the most misunderstood. This workshop will uncover the myths of dyslexia and help participants understand the origins, signs and symptoms, effective interventions and accommodations for dyslexia. It will also touch on how dyslexia is diagnosed and how to get support within the school system with time for questions and answers at the end.
If you are interested in having Tonya come to your library to do this workshop (for free!), please get in touch with her via her website: www.k12services.net
