How much do you know about dyslexia?
Rank yourself from 0 to 5.
If you ranked yourself 0-3, please take time to do some extra learning prior to the first day of class. We want you to be secure with your knowledge of what dyslexia is so that we may focus on intervention. This course is intense and it will be more effective if you build your background knowledge prior to class.
For further study, we recommend the book, Overcoming Dyslexia by Sally Shaywitz.
Be cautious! Not everything you read about dyslexia is true. There are many misconceptions, which we will discuss in our first class meeting.
Texas has different laws and procedures from other states, so keep in mind that some of what you read will be different for Texas. We will cover this in our training, as well.
