Presenters: Kelly Bevis and Amie Davenport

Dyslexia is specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin and not a problem of “seeing.” Often students struggle to read after interventions for the visual impairment are implemented.

 

Learning Objectives

Learners will:

  • Look at the characteristics of dyslexia and related reading disorders
  • Discover the early signs of a struggling reader
  • Explore the power and benefit of collaborative partnerships when conducting evaluations to identify specific needs of a Student
  • Identify interventions that address the visual impairment and reading challenges
