Students with dyslexia face unique challenges—and so do the educators charged with providing them with literacy instruction and intervention that’s effective. In this webinar series, experts from multiple disciplines will cover topics ranging from common myths and misconceptions to new approaches for assessing linguistically diverse students.
Dyslexia: What We Know and What We Want to Know
October 10, 2023

Dyslexia is one of the most common—and one of the most commonly misunderstood—learning disabilities. In this webinar, Joanna Christodoulou will address some truths, myths, and misconceptions about dyslexia and answer questions often posed by educators. Core knowledge about reading development, based on current research, will be explored as well.
Spelling and orthographic knowledge support reading as well as writing. In this webinar, Shane Templeton will address the nature of the challenges that dyslexic students face in coordinating sound, alphabetic/pattern-based spelling, and morphology from a developmental perspective. In addition, he’ll share strategies for tailoring instructional supports and interventions in ways that are both effective and engaging.
Universal screenings for reading challenges and potential learning disabilities such as dyslexia are commonplace in schools, but are they equitable? In this webinar, Lillian Durán will delve into the recommended screening protocols and practices for multilingual learners in U.S. public schools and how traditional approaches do not fairly serve dyslexic or nondyslexic students. She’ll also explore innovative approaches to assessment as well as the nuanced decision making needed to account for home language exposure and the language of reading instruction.
