Dyslexia: What Does It Take to Scale Literacy Responsibly and Sustainably for All?

Join the presenter for a robust discussion about the science of reading research and how to meet the needs of students with dyslexia. Key features of what evidence-based practices are, as well as what unaligned practices look like in classrooms, will be surfaced to inform your strategic leadership moves. Hear about success stories where phases of work focused on the prevention of reading failure, as well as alignment of intervention services, have created a literacy ecosystem where every scholar can become a skilled reader regardless of student group or zip code. Current research will be presented to ensure participants have a basic understanding of this common reading disability.
