Wanted: Teachers with Knowledge of Language and Dyslexia
Dyslexia, the most common type of reading disability, affects millions of students across the U.S. However, many myths and misunderstandings around dyslexia impede teachers' and parents' access to information and effective interventions. In this one-hour webinar, leading researcher and educator Dr. Louisa Moats will define dyslexia, provide essential facts, and discuss groundbreaking practices in professional development to help teachers learn what they need to know to help students with this condition succeed in the classroom.
This webinar is presented by Learning Ally, a national nonprofit organization that has helped millions of K-12 and college students who read and learn differently due to dyslexia, visual impairment, and other disabilities. Through its support programs for teachers and parents, with a library of over 80,000 downloadable human-narrated audio textbooks and literature titles, Learning Ally enables students with print disabilities to succeed.
Guest:Louisa Moats, Ed.D., is a renowned teacher, psychologist, researcher, and author of many influential scientific journal articles, books, and policy papers on reading, spelling, language, and teacher preparation. She was a contributing writer of the Common Core State Standards for grades K-5.
