Students with mild to moderate dyslexia can be well served in the general education setting provided that literacy instruction is explicit, systematic and evidence-based. Join Dr. Carrie Thomas Beck, former Dyslexia Specialist for the Oregon Department of Education, and Dr. Dale Webster in this on-demand webinar to gain a deeper understanding of the characteristics of dyslexia and other types of word reading difficulties and instructional practices that will help students with these reading challenges become strong readers.
Dr. Thomas Beck and Dr. Webster share:
- The Simple View of Reading as a framework for defining dyslexia and other types of word reading difficulties.
- The critical components of structured literacy instruction and the principles that guide how those components are taught.
- What early reading instruction should look like across tiers of instruction in general education for students at risk for reading difficulties, including dyslexia?
This webinar is a great opportunity for you and others to come together to build your knowledge about this reading difficulty and ensure early identification and effective intervention.
