Dyslexia is now formally recognized in accordance with Kansas law. Come listen to a lecture on dyslexia that meets the new Kansas Dyslexia Task Force recommendations. Topics discussed will guide you to help a child with dyslexia or one who is struggling to learn to read.
Did you know that, according to research, one out of every five students struggles academically because they have dyslexia? But, few parents or teachers have accurate information for how a child with dyslexia should be taught or accommodated in school.
Instead, many myths about dyslexia continue to be prevalent in our Kansas communities blocking the way to helping our children learn effectively. Fundamental Learning Center hopes to dispel those myths by presenting a monthly lecture Dyslexia: Let’s Talk About It, to parents and teachers. The series is designed to share current, research-based information and true, basic facts about dyslexia.
Research has shown that children with dyslexia are far more likely to succeed academically when parents are educated about dyslexia and provide a voice for their children. And teachers with reliable resources and up-to-date information can make knowledgeable decisions about a child’s instructional needs.
Acquiring knowledge and understanding of all these areas is vital for anyone playing a role in the life of a child with dyslexia.
