During this program you will:

  • Learn what dyslexia is, isn't, and how it presents in the classroom
  • Learn about the kind of instruction, intervention, and accommodations are most effective for students with characteristics of dyslexia
Representatives from Decoding Dyslexia CA's Tri-Valley Dyslexia Support Group will facilitate the simulation activity that includes reading and writing tasks that mimic what it's like to have a decoding/word recognition deficit.  Following the simulation, Kristen Koeller, Educator Outreach Co-Manager for Decoding Dyslexia CA and now an SRVUSD Teacher on Special Assignment for Structured Literacy will provide an overview of dyslexia addressing the points above.  Register to attend on   Eventbrite.

This event is hosted by the SRV Council of PTAs Special Needs Committee.
