As a differently abled student, Dr. Keyon Anderson has experienced both negative and positive interventions, which laid the foundation for his educational hurdles and successes. As a student turned educator, Dr. Anderson believes since learning doesn’t occur in a vacuum, educators must actively engage in teaching methods, practices, and interventions that fit their students’ unique needs. Thus, Dr. Anderson uses his inside vantage point of dyslexia to assist peer-educators in laying a learning foundation for differently abled students to meet their specific needs. Please watch as Dr. Anderson shares some of his experiences and tips to help educators succeed with dyslexic students.

This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to K-12 teachers, librarians, and school and district leaders. 


Dr. Keyon L. AndersonAbout the Presenter

Dr. Keyon L. Anderson has encountered and overcome many hardships while seeking a better future for himself and his family. Despite being the first in his immediate family to graduate from high school, he now holds two degrees in social work from California State University, Long Beach (CSULB). He also completed his Doctor of Education in educational leadership at the University of Southern California (USC) Rossier School of Education. For the past decade, he has worked with students and families as they navigate the college admissions and financial aid process.

Dr. Anderson’s education, professional, and entrepreneurship experiences have provided him with a special knack for helping students reach their fullest potential and guiding them through the college admission process. These experiences have also aided in helping him understand the importance of parent education and engagement in ensuring their children’s collegiate preparation and success.


Terrie NolandAbout the Moderator

Listen. Learn. Teach. It’s that simple. Terrie Noland uses this philosophy as an innovator and a motivator, and it’s evident as she leads, coaches and mentors thousands of K-12 educators about the science of reading each year. She has a unique perspective on the need to unify all stakeholders around a vision for education to smash the reading divide for the millions of struggling readers. Her daily mission is to add value to educators to help influence transformational changes in school districts across the country by addressing the needs of marginalized students. Terrie seeks to share her expertise and passion to encourage and to illuminate a path towards success and measurable outcomes.

If you looked at Terrie’s resume, you would be confused. Her undergraduate and graduate degree work placed her in the field of criminal justice. However, it was through continuous listening and learning that led her on a journey in education starting out in preschool teaching and administration, then becoming a Certified Academic Language Practitioner (CALP) and earning a Ph.D. in literacy and educational leadership from St. John’s University. Terrie is also a John Maxwell certified speaker and coach.

As Vice President of Educator Initiatives at Learning Ally, Terrie works to ignite enthusiasm and excitement by building champion educators and administrators on creating cultures of literacy and learning.
