Join Learning Ally for a FREE webinar

Dyslexia: Diagnosis,
Planning and Support for Struggling Readers 

Join us for a free live webinar

When students begin to experience challenges with reading and related learning issues, it can be difficult for parents to understand what specifically is happening and how to best support their children. 

In this free one-hour webinar sponsored by Learning Ally, Dr. Paul B. Yellin, Director of The Yellin Center for Mind, Brain, and Education will provide:
  • A detailed explanation of what is meant when we talk about "dyslexia"
  • An in-depth look at the many types of subtle learning variations that may be at play when a student is struggling with reading, spelling, or other challenges
  • Insight into why understanding each learner's individual strengths as well asweaknesses should be an essential component of educational planning.
Dr. Yellin will help parents, teachers and practitioners understand how developing appropriate strategies and interventions can improve children's reading skills and boost self-esteem. When families are armed with a deeper understanding of the root causes of a student's reading symptoms, they can help to grow resilient, improved learners with a rekindled love of reading.
