Webinar Date: Wednesday, April 3, 2019 4:00 – 5:00 ET
Research demonstrates that early identification along with targeted intervention can prevent reading and language problems from creating a lifelong achievement gap. However, many districts and schools do not have a process in place for early identification and intervention services, specialized training so teachers understand how to help students with dyslexia, or assessments to ensure interventions are working.
During this free webinar Sally Grimes, Founding Director of the Grimes Reading Institute, will share the important elements of an effective reading program to ensure students do not needlessly struggle with dyslexia or other reading disabilities.
Join the webinar to learn:
- The characteristics of dyslexia and related language disabilities
- Why it’s so important to screen Pre-K and Kindergarten students
- Strategies for identifying language disabilities among ELL students
- Pre-literacy interventions that can be implemented in Pre-K and Kindergarten
- Other critical considerations such as infrastructure, professional development, curricula, screening tools, and parental involvement
