Domain General Pathways to Reading Comprehension and Writing Comprehensibility

 

 

May 23, 2022

Presenter: Diana Black Kennedy

To really understand our students’ learning profile, we don’t only need to understand their diagnosis, but also the domain-general processes that underlie multiple struggles and how they affect all aspects of learning.  Join board certified educational therapist Diana Kennedy to explore the effects of working memory, processing speed, statistical learning and executive functioning on literacy learning, best-practices in remediation and implications for assessment.  Come away with more complete, nuanced and effective insights into your students’ learning profiles.

Multiple Pathways to Poor Reading Comprehension and Writing Comprehensibility

 

 

March 21, 2022

Presenter: Diana Black Kennedy

The pinnacle of literacy instruction is reading comprehension and writing comprehensibility, but we all know students who struggle with either or both.  But did you know there are multiple pathways that lead to those struggles—dyslexia, specific language impairment, dysgraphia and Autism Spectrum Disorders, to name a few--each with its own profile and its own instructional implications.  Join board certified educational therapist Diana Kennedy to explore the neurobiology of literacy acquisition, the unique obstacles different learners face, and the newest understanding of best-practices in remediation for each.

What is Disciplinary Literacy and How Does it Impact Achievement in Secondary School?

 

 

April 25, 2022

Presenter: Judy Fuhrman

In secondary school, each subject becomes increasingly specialized in how it communicates the purposes and values of its discipline. English prizes the use of synonyms, active voice, and figurative language; however, science prefers precise vocabulary, passive voice, and concise description of processes. Learning to navigate the differing use of language throughout a single school day can be challenging. Join us as we explore disciplinary literacy and its impact on students with dyslexia.

How to Advocate

The Art of Advocacy

 

 

January 10, 2022

Presenter: Cheri Rae

When longtime dyslexia advocate Cheri Rae was asked to become “The Dyslexia Lady” in her local school district, she figured she’d need to do more than just talk to young students to keep their attention. She began creating what she calls “Dyslexia Assemblage Art” to illustrate concepts and highlight individuals with dyslexia and literacy issues. The collection of unique art pieces has been exhibited in several venues and is currently on display at The Dyslexia Project community resource center in Santa Barbara. 
And she has teamed with dyslexic photographer Monie deWit to create a photographic work-in-progress they call “One in Five: The Face of Dyslexia,” showcasing individuals with dyslexia in compelling images and their own words. Ranging from a seven-year-old homeschooled child to a 90-something philanthropist, the body of work reveals the diversity and wide range of those with dyslexia, and their insights about it. 
In the webinar of January 10, Cheri will for the first time discuss her evolution as a dyslexia advocate—from mom to author to artist--and show many examples of her work and the inspiration behind each piece.
