Event Overview
Welcome message:

In this ground-breaking seminar, professionals from many different perspectives come together to learn how their interventions integrate to remediate some of the more complicated dysfunctions seen in education today. Remediation is addressed through the building blocks of mind and body health including nutrition and psychology disciplines, neurodevelopment, sensory-motor development from occupational therapy, physical therapy and language development. Finally, specific educational approaches based on Structured Literacy and the Knowledge and Practice Standards of the International Dyslexia Association will be used to demonstrate how the student with dyslexia, dyscalculia, and dysgraphia can learn reading, writing, and math.

Improve phonemic awareness, decoding skills, and comprehension

Strengthen expressive language skills and written expression
