Course Description :

In this ground-breaking seminar, professionals from many different perspectives come together to learn how their interventions integrate to remediate some of the more complicated dysfunctions seen in education today. Remediation is addressed through the building blocks of mind and body health including nutrition and psychology disciplines, neurodevelopment, sensory-motor development from occupational therapy, physical therapy and language development. Finally, specific educational approaches based on Structured Literacy and the Knowledge and Practice Standards of the International Dyslexia Association will be used to demonstrate how the student with dyslexia, dyscalculia, and dysgraphia can learn reading, writing, and math.

Leave with knowledge you can implement the next day to help students in and out of the classroom:
• Improve phonemic awareness, decoding skills, and comprehension.
• Strengthen expressive language skills and written expression.
• Increase writing production and penmanship.
• Learn when and how to use assistive technology.
• Improve math sense.
• Reduce test anxiety.
• Increase processing speed.
