Dyslexia is the most common type of specific learning disability affecting 10-15% of the total population; In the US, approximately 1 in 5 students are coded with specific learning disability (SLD), many whom experience challenges in the area(s) of comprehension, oral expression, written expression, and/or basic reading skills (NCES, 2015). With so many individuals experiencing dyslexia, it is critical that educators & service providers acknowledge Dyslexia and provide research-based interventions to support students in accessing curriculum and instruction. Learn how to develop goals, choose appropriate accommodations, provide supportive assistive technology and specific literacy instruction to support access and success in education. Interventions designed to close achievement gaps by providing well-researched programming that is explicit, systematic, and multisensory in nature, combined with assistive technologies to foster literacy, independence, and access to educational materials. Embedding these interventions and AT tools into the curriculum will personalize learning and ensure access to language, literacy, and learning opportunities for all students, including in a UDL environment. Demonstrations of innovative assistive technologies, literacy strategies and lesson planning will be provided, as well as the opportunity for the participant’s to ask questions and access to an extensive AT tools matrix. The assistive technology demonstrations will include Google Chrome extensions (Laptop, Chromebook), iOS apps and built in accessibility features (iPad, iPhone), and web-based resources, including several free and low cost options for students and adults. 2 Cont.
