This session addresses the needs of students in grades 4-12 that struggles with text comprehension because they lack proficiency in early reading skills.
During day one, participants will delve deeply into the science of teaching reading. On day 2, through grade appropriate, hands-on activities, participants will explore how cognitive processes associated with disabilities, including dyslexia and related disorders, impact the learning of foundational literacy skills. In this session, participants will build knowledge and understanding of how instructional supports, including the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Guidelines along with assistive technology can be used to accommodate and reduce the impact of a disability.
This session was developed by the Inclusion in Texas Network in collaboration with the Texas Education Agency and is aligned with the HB 3 Reading Academies. K-3 educators must still attend the HB 3 Reading Academies to meet the requirements of that legislation
