Dyslexia represents the most common and most prevalent of all known learning disabilities and impacts approximately 1 in 5 individuals. This workshop introduces participants to characteristics of dyslexia and related learning disabilities, including common deficits and strengths, clarifies common misunderstandings, and introduces participants to the framework and specific elements of Structured Literacy Instruction, which is essential for students with dyslexia but beneficial to all literacy learners. Participants will learn ways to assess young children for indicators of dyslexia and strategies to support their successful literacy learning.
