A big shout-out to Madison Public Library for the beautiful meeting room where our Parents as Learning Coaches training was held.
It was a great day of parents learning about how dyslexia affects their child and ways parents can help with homework and learning tasks. We truly can have homes that are friendly to dyslexia’s challenges!
New friendships were formed as groups worked together to
practice strategies or make manipulatives, directed by me.
Casey was a great sport by modeling the Brain Hat! I demonstrated
how brains of individuals with dyslexia are wired differently from
brains of non-dyslexic folks.
Professional Development About Dyslexia
“A teacher educated about dyslexia can be the one person who saves a
child and his/her family from years of frustration and anxiety. That teacher
can play a pivotal role in changing the whole culture of a school.”
~Dr. Kelli Sandman-Hurley
Teachers and parents want to do all they can to help the dyslexic students in their care succeed in the classroom.
Often they simply don't know what to do.
Their dyslexic child does so well at the 1:1 Orton-Gillingham tutoring table, or with the small group Structured Literacy specialist, but that success doesn't seem to translate to the classroom setting.
Teachers and parents each need information about dyslexia and how the strengths and weaknesses of a dyslexic learner impact learning. This knowledge can empower teachers to to create a classroom environment where dyslexic students thrive alongside their non-dyslexic classmates. Parents can gain the insights they need to provide a supportive home system free of emotionally charged stress over homework and study skills.
Cindy Hall Consulting Professional Development workshops are specifically about dyslexia and the dyslexic learner. These workshops are informative, practical and engaging. The goal of each workshop is to give a window of understanding into the unique characteristics of students with dyslexia, and to equip teachers teaching with strategies and tools that work in the classroom setting. A bridge can be created between the Orton-Gillingham tutoring/small group success the mainstream classroom struggles. Cindy Hall Consulting trainings provide teachers with the invaluable knowledge to build that bridge in their classroom this year.
