Learning about dyslexia provides an opportunity for educators to empower all learners to discover their strengths and positively shift the entire curve. This Dyslexia Awareness Month, join us and Microsoft for Dyslexia DecodEd, a three-part virtual event series dedicated to exploring research, strategies, and technologies that can help educators support students with this common learning difference.
Research has shown that when the educational strategies that support students with dyslexia are implemented across the entire classroom, outcomes improve for every learner. Microsoft has assembled experts, organizations, and advocates for a month of virtual events designed to help educators put the information, tools, and resources required to support students with dyslexia into action. Hear from Dr. Sally Shaywitz, Co-Founder and Co-Director of the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity, Emily Hanford, Senior Education Correspondent for APM Reports, Hilderbrand Pelzer III, award-winning author, educator, and speaker, Kate Griggs, Founder of Made by Dyslexia, and many more!
