New PEATC (Parent Educational Advocacy Training Center) Workshop: Dyslexia Presentation and Simulation (2017)
In this workshop, attendees will gather an overview of dyslexia and participate in an intensive simulation intended to generate robust conversation around children with dyslexia and their experiences in the classroom. The presentation will highlight the prevalence, characteristics, intervention, and accommodations for dyslexia. The content will also review where dyslexia can be found in the Virginia Department of Education resources and provide attendees with a broad base of additional resources that can be used or shared with families. The simulation is intended to give the participant the power of empathy, which can truly be attained in this short experience.
