DYSLEXIA COURSE MAP
Meet your virtual student guide who will introduce the EmpathED Dyslexia Course
In our first module, we define Dyslexia, learn the science behind the diagnosis and begin to understand the difficulties that students with Dyslexia encounter in the classroom.
Here we learn how someone with Dyslexia processes information in different ways, and identify advantages found in students with Dyslexia such as intuitive thinking and creative problem solving.
Learn the brain science behind Dyslexia and further understand the difficulties that students with Dyslexia encounter compared to those without Dyslexia.
We hear from Francesca, a student with Dyslexia and a Dyslexia advocate. She will describe her difficulties, strengths and her general experience being a person with Dyslexia.
If you could envision how a student with Dyslexia might experience your classroom, might it influence your teaching style, your expectations and perhaps help you connect and empathize with that student?
In this immersive module, let's experience what it might feel like from the student's perspective to have Dyslexia in the classroom.
In this module, we go over ways to modify classroom instruction in order to better accommodate your students with Dyslexia in accordance with legal guidelines.
Francesca describes how she compensates difficulties, strengths and her general experience being a person with Dyslexia in the classroom.
People with Dyslexia can be excellent storytellers, artists, photographers, and inventors. It is helpful, as it is with any defined "disability" that you don't feel sorry for or talk down to someone with Dyslexia.
In this module, we go over tactical tips for instruction that you can use in the classroom today.
Dr. Christa Bialka describes Disability as a part of a student's identify and teaches how to recognize Disability to create an inclusive classroom.
Congratulations on completing the EmpathED course on Dyslexia.
