Structured Literacy and Dyslexia

Recorded Webinar

Duration: 30 minutes

Intended Audience: District Leaders, Early Learning Teachers (Birth-5 yrs), Elementary Teachers, ESOL Teachers, Instructional Coaches/Coordinators, School Leaders, Special Education Teachers

Presenters explain what a structured literacy approach to reading instruction is and how this approach supports students with dyslexia. Structured literacy is an umbrella term that refers to approaches to reading that reflect key instructional features (i.e., how instruction is provided) and content elements (i.e., what teachers teach) associated with gains in reading development. Effective instruction for students with dyslexia is diagnostic and prescriptive, includes frequent progress monitoring, and involves more repetitions of practice as well as strategic scaffolding.
