School In-Service/ Teacher Training Programs
Dyslexia is not part of the standard curriculum in any of Arizona's teacher training programs. For this reason, in-service and professional development trainings on dyslexia are very important for every Arizona school and teacher. Dyslexia Pros offers informational dyslexia seminars that are very helpful for all teachers and administrators.
The seminar will include 5 different parts.
1. What is dyslexia.
There has been a lot of research done on dyslexia. This section discusses the science behind dyslexia, how we know what we know, and how to spot a student with dyslexia.
2. What it feels like to be dyslexic
This section provides simulations that give insight on how a dyslexic person reads and writes. These simulations are very fun, but also very informative and thought provoking.
3. Classroom accommodations and teaching techniques.
In this section, a variety of different classroom accommodations and good teaching strategies teachers can use to help their dyslexic students will be taught. To the surprise of many, these techniques are also great for non-dyslexic students! We will cover how to teach reading, writing, math, science, social studies and spelling.
4. Intervention methods.
Dyslexic students need very specific intervention methods in order to learn how to read and spell successfully. We will go over the different methods, what they are used for, and how to utilize them.
5. Question and Answer session.
Every question is important!
