Dyslexia and Language Based Learning: How the Difference or Disability May Be Up to You!


Course Description

One in five students have a language based learning disability, dyslexia being the most common. Less then one third of children with reading disabilities are receiving school services, despite the fact that they have the intellectual capacity to thrive, not barely survive. Many of the most trained school professionals involved in the referral, remediation, and intervention process are misinformed or uninformed about Dyslexia, Healthcare professionals have the ability to make a huge impact on the success of students with Dyslexia, but feel ill equipped and uneducated about the disorder.

In an effort to address the needs of individuals with Dyslexia and reduce the learning problems before they manifest and widen, healthcare professionals need a deeper understanding of Dyslexia and its coexisting conditions. Through the use of the latest evidence-based practices, case histories and research, this course aims to equip the healthcare professional with an arsenal of tools necessary to feel confident in playing a key role in early identification and intervention. Furthermore, healthcare professionals will learn a fresh new approach to articulation, auditory processing and executive function intervention that will be beneficial for students with language based learning disabilities.
