Imagine that you are 10 years old and struggling to decode and read. When you walk through the doors of your school, does your school environment say, “You are welcome here and we are going to support you as a learner”?
In order to create a learning environment that feels safe, comfortable and empowering for students, schools need to adhere to some basic guiding principles and practices. In this edWebinar, Learning Ally’s Terrie Noland shares how to create a supportive culture for your students who are struggling readers. Terrie presents these three key guiding principles for making your school a positive learning environment for dyslexic students:
- Notice me early
- Give me the AT tools and accommodations that fit my needs as a learner
- Create an environment in which I can thrive
This session is designed for K-8 administrators, general education teachers and special education teachers, as well as school librarians. Learn how to make your school a friendly place for dyslexic students!
