Learning Ally sponsors the free Professional Learning Community (PLC) on edWeb, Empowering Struggling Readers. This PLC provides webinars and resources that help support students with dyslexia and specific learning disabilities. Here, educators, administrators, special educators, curriculum leaders, and librarians can collaborate on how to make thriving students out of struggling readers. Empowering Struggling Readers also provides insight on assistive technology, accommodations, and overall solutions to foster academic success and a love of reading in students.
Denver Public Schools and Learning Ally joined forces to find solutions to bridge this content and education gap. In this webinar, Rob Frantum-Allen (Director of Integrated Services) and Jackie Bott (Assistive Technology Coordinator) will explain how the organizations created a strategically designed model program where assistive technology (AT) is being integrated into educational efforts.
