Creating the Ideal World for a Dyslexic Student

Students with dyslexia thrive when they have a two pronged team to tackle their educational needs. The ideal team members would be an interventionist to deliver Orton-Gillingham approach tutoring AND a classroom teacher who understands dyslexia related school struggles and has the knowledge to accommodate the learning differences associated with dyslexia. 

 

Cindy would like to invite you to join her online course, created from six of her most popular 90 minute Dyslexia Friendly Classroom training modules. Classroom teachers will be empowered by this training to better understand the possibilities for small but indispensable changes which can make a world of difference for students with dyslexia.

Registration for fall cohort is now open!

Here's what you should know about the course: 

- it is a 6-week, self-paced course with one module per week, mainly reading with some video content 

- there is a weekly zoom call with Cindy to discuss the week's topic

- the course is divided into two sections: what every teacher needs to know about dyslexia and ideas & directions for teacher created materials to support dyslexia friendly instruction

New Online Course Option

Schools may now form their own cohort to take the Dyslexia Friendly Classroom online course. 

  • Set your own completion schedule - all the modules in two days or one per month -  you decide

  • Your administrator (or a designated teacher) acts as moderator for your group

  • Lower group pricing applies for three or more teachers, and the moderator is free.  

 
Endorsement as AACS and ACSI Continuing Education Provider

Dyslexia Friendly Classroom Professional Development Certificates of completion are accepted as contact-hour certificates toward the certification requirements of the American Association of Christian Schools (AACS) and Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).

Here's what Cindy's DFC students are saying about the course:

"Each lesson had so many nuggets of wisdom that I could apply to my class that day!" ~ Mrs. Hutton, grade 5 teacher

"My favorite part of the course was learning the brain science behind how learning takes place. That knowledge transformed my lesson presentations."  - Katie, grades 1 and 2
