Dyslexia, Dysteachia, and How Science of Reading-Based Instruction is the Answer
Children with dyslexia can’t change how their brains decode language—but teachers can adopt approaches that work for all students, including those with dyslexia. Professional learning grounded in the science of reading can help eliminate dysteachia in educators and ensure students with dyslexia get the explicit and systematic instruction they require to successfully achieve literacy.
Brenda Peters, M.A., M.Ed., SAIF, ICALP, the co-founder and director of assessment and consultation at ACT Dyslexia Solutions, and Kimberly Stockton and Octavia Gray-Essex from Lexia® discuss how educational leaders can bolster their teachers’ instructional understanding and see positive student outcomes during this in-depth webinar.
