What the Dys? Understanding Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyspraxia & Dyscalculia
October 18, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm PDT
Learn strategies to support learning for those with Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyspraxia & Dyscalculia.
1 in 5 learners are formally diagnosed with a learning disability, though experts believe that number is much higher. In a recent study, Understood.org found that as a result of distance learning, nearly three-quarters (72%) of parents have become aware of or noticed their children may have learning challenges or differences. Not only is awareness of learning differences growing, but so is the anxiety and confusion that follows. Caregivers are unsure of who to ask for support, what symptoms would warrant a diagnosis, and where to turn for treatment. We have been in your shoes and are here to help! Join our panelists as they break down each of the “dys” diagnoses—Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, Dyscalculia, Dyspraxia—as well as their signs, symptoms, supports, and strategies in order to equip and empower our audience to bolster their child’s strengths and develop areas of need with urgency.
The webinar will consist of a 30-minute panelist discussion followed by an opportunity for attendees to directly interact with the speakers in a live Q&A session.
