This 30-hour training summit is intended for classroom teachers who desire to gain a better understanding of dyslexia related school struggles and learn how to accommodate the learning differences associated with dyslexia. The course includes lecture/discussion with an expert in education, re-working of existing lesson plans, plus hands-on creation of materials to support the altered lesson plans.

Check out last year’s summit recap here.

More details will be available soon.

Instructor

Cindy Hall

Cindy Hall, the founding director of the Dyslexia Center at Lindsay Lane Christian Academy, has 17 years of teaching experience with elementary students and another 16 years focused on teaching specifically dyslexic learners. She is a graduate of Faith Baptist Bible College with post graduate work in special education at Iowa State University, as well as many training hours in the Orton-Gillingham approach for dyslexic learners. After spending a decade developing a dyslexia friendly school and seeing the positive impact that environment had on the entire school, it is her passion to help teachers understand how best to foster success in the dyslexic students sitting in their classrooms through sharing characteristics and best practices: which are good for all learners, but vital for those with dyslexia.
