S19 - Improving Writing Skills of Dyslexic Native and Non-Native Speakers of English With MSML "Tricks of the Trade"

Nov 11, 2017 1:15pm ‐ Nov 11, 2017 2:15pm

Standard: $20.00


Through simulations of research-evidenced, explicit, multisensory-structured (MSML) text composition strategies, participants learn to help dyslexic native and non-native speakers of English master expository text composition challenges at all grade levels. Differentiations for English as a native and non-native language are shared to ensure that practitioners can address specific needs effectively.

Learning Objectives:

  • ASSESSMENT: Examine language/learning assessment process and practices for students with learning disabilities/dyslexia.
  • ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNER: Examine the relationship between acquisition of second language and instructional implication for students with language learning disabilities/dyslexia.
  • HANDWRITING/WRITTEN LANGUAGE: Identify effective practices and strategies for written language.
  • MULTISENSORY STRUCTURED LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION: Assess multisensory language instruction and how it can effectively be taught in a classroom setting.
  • MULTISENSORY STRUCTURED LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION: Recognize the nature of dyslexia and related language learning disabilities and the role of multisensory structured language instruction (MSL).
