This session features a discussion on how a school for students with dyslexia and ADHD created effective partnership programs in structured literacy with public schools, independent schools, and institutions of higher education. Case studies focus on strategies to engage in those opportunities, lessons learned, and actionable suggestions for school leaders to consider in forming their own partnership opportunities. This presentation will be engaging for leaders in LD schools and with potential partner-schools interested in collaborating with independent LD school programs.
