NCCAT Begins “Focus Friday” with Program on Dyslexia

“Focus Friday: A Deep Dive into Dyslexia” will take place February 23, 2018 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Cullowhee at NCCAT, a nationally recognized leader in teacher professional development.

The North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching (NCCAT) will be offering upcoming programs covering a variety of educational topics on upcoming Fridays.

The first is a “Focus Friday: A Deep Dive into Dyslexia” that will take place February 23, 2018 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Cullowhee at NCCAT, a nationally recognized leader in teacher professional development.

Deepen your knowledge and expertise as it relates to awareness, instruction and assessment of students exhibiting difficulties in reading consistent with dyslexia. Discussion will center on the science of reading—why students experience reading difficulty—the causes and characteristics of dyslexia and reading disabilities. We also will explore the components of word level reading difficulties including phonological awareness, decoding, encoding and sight word recognition related to dyslexia. Participants will become better aware of evidence informed instructional and assessment practices in reading appropriate for students with dyslexia.

Come be a part of NCCAT’s daylong professional development session. Breakfast and lunch is included. A limited number of rooms are available if you need to arrive the night before.
