INCL 620 Understanding Dyslexia- Graduate Workshop for K-12 Educators

College of Critical & Professional Studies

1 credit 14.0 hours
600 level graduate course

This course is designed to help K-12 educators understand firsthand the reading and writing
challenges often experienced by students with dyslexia. These students will not “catch up”
without direct explicit interventions and evidence-based supports. Educators need to know
what to look for and how to differentiate instruction so they can support students in a
timely manner. This course will provide an in-depth exploration of dyslexia, covering the
biological and cognitive bases, early warning signs and characteristics, information on
assessment and diagnosis, strategies for effective remediation and accommodation, and
federal legislation covering students with disabilities. For educators across all
disciplines and grade levels.

Open to graduate students from the Division of Continuing Studies.
This course is not repeatable for credit.
