Full course description

Course Introduction

In January 2021, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine signed HB436 into law. Of the mandates in this new Dyslexia law, two are significant for Ohio teachers:

  • Schools must screen all kindergarten students for dyslexia, and
  • Schools must provide dyslexia-related professional development for teachers.

This relevant workshop will cover the following four elements:

  1. An overview of HB436
  2. The Dyslexia Guidebook produced by the Ohio Dyslexia Committee
  3. An introduction to Structured Literacy (SL), a.k.a. Orton-Gillingham (OG), the approved approach for teaching students with dyslexia
  4. The elements of a basic dyslexia screener. This workshop is also useful for parents whose child/children have recently been identified as having dyslexia.

Targeted Audience: Classroom teachers (PK-5), Classroom teachers (4-9), Preschool teachers, general public, reading teachers and reading specialists who do not already have certification in the Structured Literacy/OG approach.
