VKC Special Lecture: Say Dyslexia – Say WHAT? Advocating for Students under the Dyslexia Law
February 25 (Tu)
Held in Room 241 VKC/One Magnolia Circle Building, or available via webinar. Zoom connection info will be sent to registrants before the lecture.
Almost four years after the “Say Dyslexia” Law was passed, students with characteristics of dyslexia continue to be underserved and less likely to be identified. Just in time for spring IEP meetings, this presentation will tell current and future advocates—parents, advocates, teachers, and trainees—specifically what to say and what not to say when you think a child needs testing; when you are seeing reading problems and seeking accommodations through the IEP process; and when nothing is working for the best student outcome. Two experts will answer your questions and provide an overview of the law and appropriate tiered dyslexia-specific intervention through the Response to Intervention (RTI2) framework.
