Start your child’s school year off on the right foot by empowering him/her with the tools for self-advocacy. This workshop will focus on creating a presentation to be used with teachers, child study team members and school staff for the purpose of educating them on dyslexia and your child’s personal learning style. This approach has been used successfully by many students in the YES! program at various grade levels. Creating and delivering a presentation that introduces your student in a personal way, explains the challenges and advantages of dyslexia and invites teachers to work in partnership toward a successful school year is a powerful and positive experience for all involved.
This is a hands-on workshop, so students should come prepared with a laptop that has Google Slides, MS PowerPoint or other application that he/she is familiar with. Please have photos of your child with friends, family, pets and doing activities he/she enjoys such as sports and hobbies saved in a folder either on the laptop or Google Drive for easy access. Several example presentations will be shown and sample outlines provided before attendees create their own personal presentation. Students will leave the workshop with their own personal presentation that they can use in September to introduce themselves to their new teachers and explain what helps them be successful students.
