Effective Reading Instruction for Children with Dyslexia (Sandy Springs, GA)

March 21, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

6:00 – 7:30 pmSandy Springs Library, Sandy Springs, GA

Our presenter will discuss the common signs of dyslexia and what parents and teachers can do to help a dyslexic child learn to read with greater ease and expression and to spell with more confidence. Attendees will learn about what is meant by a structured literacy approach, an instructional approach which incorporates Orton-Gillingham principles. The presenter will allow time for discussion following the presentation.

About Our Presenter: Jean DeRosa, M.Ed., is an educational leader in the area of reading and  instruction. She enjoys teaching teachers how to implement educational strategies that will lead to a positive and successful learning environment for all levels of learners. In the past, Ms. DeRosa guided academic support centers at two different private schools; taught Special Education in Resource, Self-Contained and Inclusion in public schools; and tutored and tested groups and individuals privately as an educational therapist.  Ms. DeRosa’s most recent experience is with Wilson Language Training. She travels across the United States to coach teachers, teach workshops and certify teachers for both levels of the Wilson program. She also works to certify teachers and administrators as facilitators so that they are able to carry on the coaching and support in their prospective buildings.

This IDA-GA / DDGA partnered Outreach Event is free and open to the public. We would like to thank parent volunteers Heather Chlup, Laurie Nichols, and Carrie Marx for their assistance in bringing this outreach to the Sandy Springs/Dunwoody area.
