Webinar: Remediating and Accommodating Students with Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD)/Dyslexia at the Secondary Level

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

School teams face multiple challenges in meeting the learning needs of secondary-level students with SLD/Dyslexia. This live webinar focuses on the systems-level issues pertinent to providing accommodations and specialized reading and writing instruction for these students. A range of low-to-high assistive technology (AT) will be explored that can support students' access to general education curricular content. In addition, a Connecticut Director of Special Education will discuss her district-level strategy for building capacity to meet the needs of secondary students with SLD/Dyslexia. The structures of secondary education will be explored, including staffing and scheduling solutions unique to middle and high school programs.

Presenters will share information and their experience on these topics and respond to questions throughout the webinar. The webinar will be archived on both the CSDE and SERC websites following the live broadcast.
