    Free Teacher Training on Dyslexia

    The following videos are a response to the passing of Senate Bills 866 and 867 and the report submitted to the Texas Legislature this year by the Governor's Interim Committee on Dyslexia and Related Disorders. Schools districts are required to train teachers on dyslexia reflecting the recent scientific studies. Teachers must use multi-sensory teaching methods and appropriate technology when accommodating dyslexic students. Twenty percent of all school children have severe or profound dyslexia. As many more have mild or moderate issues.

    The following videos are based on scientific studies outlined in Overcoming Dyslexia, by Dr. Sally Shaywitz, The Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity, MIT's study results: Dyslexia independent of IQ, and Bright Solutions for Dyslexia, by Susan Barton.
