Dyslexia was in focus even before eLearning. But now, in an ever-changing environment, districts are looking for stable and effective ways to help students access text more independently—wherever they learn.
They are asking “how to support dyslexic students.” What makes a real difference for students living and learning with dyslexia and other reading disabilities?
Request this on-demand to hear Ptahra Jeppe, M.Ed., JD., CEO Don Johnston, M.S., and Kati McIlroy, OT/L, ATS, as they reveal what works for students with reading disabilities and how to build a dyslexia-friendly learning toolkit.
