Author Dr. Sally Shawitz Presented by The Connecticut Branch of the International Dyslexia Association holds Family Literacy Forum
Presented by the Connecticut Branch of the International Dyslexia Association, the astounding author of Overcoming Dyslexia Dr. Sally Shawitz is hosting:
A Family Literacy Forum on
Featuring Keynote Speaker, Dr. Sally Shaywitz, distinguished Professor and Co-Director of the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity, and author of the widely acclaimed national best-seller, Overcoming Dyslexia: A New and Complete Science-Based Program for Reading Problems at Any Level.
Don’t miss this important family event highlighting the work of Dr. Sally Shaywitz -- including a viewing of her HBO movie The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia -- also featuring a panel discussion on dyslexia in Connecticut, and a resource fair.
Additionally, education graduate students will be conducting free literacy screenings throughout the morning.
My personal opinion is that Overcoming Dyslexia is the best text for students dealing with & learning about Dyslexia. The HBO documentary was moving on and should be mandatory in low level functioning/graduating schools.
