Virtual Conference: Research into the Classroom
October 17 @ 8:30 am - 12:30 pm$35 – $65
From Laboratory to Classroom to Benefit Students and Families: Partnership between the UCSF Dyslexia Center and a School for Children Who Learn Differently.
This presentation describes how a school for children with learning differences and a nearby academic medical center built a productive relationship to benefit students and parents and how they shared what they learned in the process. Emphasis will be on how to help your child/children with their challenges and also how to help them enhance their strengths. After all, the strengths are so important, especially for their self-esteem.
Educators want immediate access to relevant research results that can help them immediately to improve their classroom teaching. Researchers look at time differently – if the necessary funding is available, the greater depth and quantity the researcher can test and gather results, the better. Parents and students want directly useful information that does not take too much of their scarce time.
Dr. Robert Hendren and Karen Kruger will describe the research collaboration of developmental neuroscience clinician/researchers and teachers, administrators, and parents in the classroom for students at a school for children with learning differences. The research is focused on identifying the different types of dyslexia to understand more precisely the individual areas of challenge for each student and to identify the strengths of dyslexia, and how to strengthen those strengths. These successful collaborations are rare and the reasons and potential solutions for this will be described in this presentation.
The conclusion will involve a general discussion regarding Structured Literacy and ideas for its use virtually, led by Andrew Stetkevich.
