Providence College, Smith Hill Annex
Presenter: Beatrice McGeoch
The workshop will use the Experience Dyslexia® kit put together by the International Dyslexia Association of Northern California. The kit includes hands-on activities that let participants experience some of the challenges and frustrations faced by people with this language-based learning disability.
After moving through six learning stations that simulate language-related challenges, participants will identify and practice techniques to bring back to their programs to improve communication and instruction.
Many students with reading difficulties may not have a diagnosis, but all will benefit from improved reading instruction and communication techniques.
Workshop is limited to 18 participants. The workshop kit is also available for programs to borrow. For more information, please contact Beatrice McGeoch.
Please consider attending whether or not you currently have a student with a dyslexia diagnosis!
