Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

In 2017, a dyslexia bill (HB 2202) was passed in Arizona. This bill required the AZ Department of Education to create a dyslexia handbook for educators and parents. Several partners have been collaborating on resources and supports for both educators and parents. In this session, participants learn the definition of dyslexia, how to identify early risk indicators, what administrators and teachers can do to provide early interventions, and information about a pilot project in an AZ district to address teacher training.

Learning Objectives:

  • ADVOCACY AND LEGISLATION: Understand the laws and interpretations under various legislative motions and learn ways to implement advocacy efforts locally or at the state level.
  • READING, SKILLS, & STRATEGIES: Outline the critical components for proficient reading including language development, phonological awareness, decoding, fluency and comprehension.
  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine the conditions under which teachers can learn and apply understandings of language and literacy to more effective instruction of “at risk” students.
