Why should you attend?

Dyslexia is the most prevalent learning disability, impacting up to 20 percent or more of the population. While it has become a hot topic among educators, its buzzworthy status hasn’t prevented pervasive, sometimes damaging myths from taking hold—misconceptions that may prevent young readers from getting the support they need.

Join Drs. Cindy Jiban and Tiffany Peltier for an engaging, evidence-based exploration of dyslexia. They’ll discuss recent research findings, offer insight into screening and intervention, and detail how screenings available in MAP® Reading Fluency™ can support young readers. Participants will also learn strategies for helping colleagues and caregivers better understand this common learning disability.
