In 2017 the California Department of Education released Dyslexia Guidelines, as mandated by AB 1369, the “dyslexia bill” passed in 2015. Now schools are seeking ways to implement recommendations to identify and help children with this learning difference as early as kindergarten.
Administrators, teachers, parents, and the community are invited to learn more about dyslexia and guideline implementation at Dyslexia and AB 1369: School and Community Partnership & Critical Next Steps, to be held on Saturday, October 20, 2018, at the Ed Roberts Campus in Berkeley. The program is cosponsored by IDA Northern California, Learning Ally, and Decoding Dyslexia CA. It will begin with IDA’s popular Experience Dyslexia® simulation, a group activity that gives a hands-on sense of the classroom challenges these students confront. An afternoon panel of dyslexia experts, former members of the Dyslexia Guidelines working group, teachers, and school administrators will share ways to implement guideline recommendations, drawing on examples from Bay Area school districts. The event will feature booths and exhibitors with information on assistive technology and local dyslexia resources. Please join us!
