Parents, teachers and all interested in learning more about dyslexia,
Austin ISD invites you to join us for the free Second Annual Free Central Texas Dyslexia Conference, “Empowering the Gift of Dyslexia”. Dyslexia effects an estimated 17% of school age students and can severely impact educational outcomes if not recognized and served appropriately. One of the ways the conference addresses this need is by bringing in nationally recognized speakers, sharing best practices with the community and offering professional development hours for teachers and administrators. This years experts include Dr. Kelli Sandman-Hurley from Dyslexia Training Institute blog and Jamie Martin, an expert on on assistive technology. Breakout sessions will cover topics such as social and emotional factors and strategies for dyslexic students, and technology resources for student success. Additionally, AISD’s very own Dr. Cruz will help kick off the conference!
