Course Description:
Dyslexia, Dysgraphia or Dyscalculia are among the most complicated learning disorders seen in education today. Many of these students struggle to complete academic tasks, maintain social relationships with peers and adults, and are constantly under stress.

In this seminar, you will learn how underlying deficits related to executive function, visual-perceptual and visual-motor skills, and auditory processing skills affect a student’s ability to read and write at grade and age appropriate levels. Participants will explore the impact visual processing, cognitive development and organization have on acquiring mathematic ability, and understand how to support and teach struggling math learners.

This presentation shows you how to identify underlying deficits and develop IEPs or 504 plans that effectively address individual student needs. You will develop a plan that includes game-based learning, assistive technology, phonemic and phonological awareness practice, focused auditory interventions and simple techniques to help with visual processing ability.

Upon completion of this program, you will be able to provide strategies to address your student’s/client’s:
• Visual perceptual skills
• Visual motor integration
• Auditory and visual memory
• Reading rate, accuracy, fluency, comprehension
• Phonetic awareness and memory
• Spelling and handwriting struggles.

• Formulate and implement plans for comprehensive evaluation to identify diagnostic criteria and underlying deficits present in students with reading, written expression, or math learning difficulties.
• Develop IEPs or 504 plans that provide students with the instruction and support they need to be successful in reading, writing, math, listening comprehension, and oral expression.
• Choose student-centered accommodations based on recommendations of the International Dyslexia Association and Americans with Disabilities Act.
• Design effective strategies to treat underlying deficits in the areas of executive function visual processing, auditory processing, phonemic/phonological awareness, memory, and anxiety to improve reading, writing and math skills.
• Teach students self-advocacy and anxiety management skills related to classroom performance, meeting deadlines, and project completion.
• Utilize low-tech and high-tech assistive technology supports to help students access information through text, improve study skills, complete written assignments and help with math calculation.
