Course Description:

Up to 20% of our population has a diagnosed (or undiagnosed) language processing disorder known as dyslexia. Therefore, it is possible that 1 in 5 children in each classroom may have a learning disability. Participants in this class will experience an in- person dyslexia simulation workshop based on the research of the Dyslexia Training Institute. The “Dyslexia For A Day” interactive workshop is designed to create awareness and empathy for those who may experience dyslexia. The workshop includes reading comprehension, writing, spelling, round robin reading, and auditory processing simulations and group discussions. Additional independent assignments, virtual meetings, book study, and projects will be required. At the end of the course, participants will be able to define dyslexia as a Specific Learning Disability, differentiate between dyslexia myths and facts, discuss possible socio-emotional issues, and be equipped to create awareness in their own classroom or district.
