Educators who work with students with disabilities are invited to attend Everyone Reading’s annual conference, which focuses on building success for students with dyslexia and learning disabilities. This year’s conference, on Tuesday, March 18 and Wednesday, March 19, at the NYU Kimmel Center in Manhattan, is jam-packed with more than 75 workshops on topics ranging from integrating research-based reading instruction into daily practice to strategies for helping frustrated learners regulate their emotions.
Kate Garnett, who leads the graduate teacher preparation program in learning disabilities at Hunter College, will kick off the conference with a keynote address on supporting persistence in math, reading and writing. Among the other program offerings: Improving Memory: the Role of Executive Functioning; Accommodations in the Age of the Common Core; Distinguishing Learning Disabilities and Second Language Acquisition; and Making Math Meaningful. Participants will be able to learn about a variety of reading intervention programs, including Orton Gillingham, Fundations, Great Leaps and Read Naturally. The presenters are top names in their fields.
