Description

  • Discover 5 secret signs of dyslexia no one ever told you
  • Improve ability to recall multi-step instructions, letter sequence, lists or tasks to complete
  • Improve grades, written and verbal expression to align with IQ
  • Turn everyday games and routines into the perfect treatment activities
  • Dyslexia - the invisible disability that impacts 1:5 individuals!
  • It’s not just an issue of trying harder or paying attention.

You know the stories you hear from your clients - hours of studying just to forget it all on a test the following day, constant lack of ability to understand what they read, difficulty remembering lists or instructions beyond three, the overwhelming frustration of knowing what they want to say or do, but not being able to express it on paper or get the words out, socially withdrawn in attempt to hide their struggles.

In this seminar, you will have the opportunity to practice treatment ideas that will incorporate the use of client-centered everyday routines, games, technology, sensory and hands-on approaches to help your client overcome the challenges of life with dyslexia.

Upon completion of this program, you will be able to immediately provide treatment to address your client’s:

Visual perceptual skills

Visual motor integration

Auditory and visual memory

Reading rate, accuracy, fluency, comprehension

Phonetic awareness and memory

Spelling and handwriting struggles

Turn everyday activities into successful treatment!
