This edWebinar will present the latest research findings by Dr. Nadine Gaab and Dr. John Gabrieli on the importance of identifying students with dyslexia across all grades. The research findings should inform administrator and educator decisions regarding best practices on how to identify, remediate and accommodate these students.

- Why, when, and how best to screen for dyslexia
- What activities to include when planning appropriate, meaningful interventions for students presenting the characteristics of dyslexia
- How to put the latest research on students with dyslexia into action
There will be time to ask Susan your questions after her presentation. All K-12 administrators, educators, special education staff, and librarians are invited to attend.
