Delving into Dyslexia: Identifying and Supporting Students

Dyslexia inhibits otherwise capable students from mastering encoding, decoding, and fluency skills necessary for reading proficiency. Affecting approximately 8-20% of individuals, the impact of instruction and learning is profound, with implications beyond the scope of reading alone. OTs have a unique and powerful role in the identification, assessment, and intervention processes for children and teens with dyslexia. This 2-hour webinar explores the history of dyslexia, diagnosis, and intervention strategies. The presenter emphasizes OT’s role in addressing common co-existing challenges, such as ocular motor, executive functioning, written expression, and motor skills. Based on the most up-to-date research, participants gain foundational background information with practical, ready-to-use strategies for children and teens to meet many federal and state mandates for dyslexia training.
