Workshop Details

Reading seems effortless to most of us, yet many learners have great difficulty deciphering the words on the page. This can leave them feeling insecure and frustrated. There is much we can do to support these learners and guide them on the road to reading excellence.   

In this PLD Course you will learn strategies for: 

  • identifying the different types of reading difficulty, including dyslexia 
  • screening for dyslexia 
  • conducting diagnostic assessments 
  • teaching learners with reading difficulties 
  • supporting learners with reading difficulties in a culturally responsive way.
