Dyslexia is the most common and prevalent of all learning disabilities, affecting one out of every five children in the United States. Recognizing symptoms early and implementing the right type of instruction is critical to future success.
Susan Barton, founder of Bright Solutions for Dyslexia, will share the causes and warning signs of dyslexia to explain why bright children struggle first with spelling, then with written expression, and eventually hitting a wall in reading development by third grade.
Susan will also discuss effective tutoring methods, and simple accommodations needed to succeed in the classroom.
Mrs. Barton will stay to answer questions from the audience after the seminar.
