Every year a new group of educators are assigned dyslexia responsibilities and ask for basic information to get started. Sometimes educators have the reading background but not the necessary background on federal disability law with respect to IDEA and Section 504 Child Find. Sometimes, educators need some additional basic information on dyslexia and reading. Unfortunately our main conference sessions don't focus much on the basics. We created this half-day to get you up to speed prior to the main conference. Here's what we provided during the 2019 Pre-Conference. The 2020 agenda will be published in July 2020.
