Dyslexia laws and legislation are changing rapidly in the U.S. For many, it can be difficult to navigate this road in understanding terminology, requirements, and educational expectations. The goal of this edWebinar is to:
- Inform educators and schools about websites where they can find reliable information
- Demonstrate how to interpret the legislation or guidelines
- Suggest what to do next in order to integrate an action plan to build and grow a dyslexia program
This edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through high school teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. There will be time to have your questions answered at the end of the presentation.
