Dyslexia Laws and Implications for English Learners

Wednesday February 1, 2023
3:30 - 5:00 PM
Room 140-142

Timely and appropriate identification and support for students with dyslexia is mandated by federal law. Most states have taken legislative or other actions on dyslexia. While these actions are meant to increase the academic success of all students, there are some “hidden dangers” for marginalized student populations, including English learners. This workshop will focus on the intersection of the science of reading and best practices for supporting the language and literacy needs of ELs. Participants will learn specific strategies for enhancing recommended research-based assessment and instruction practices so that students with language differences are positively impacted as well. Participants will have several opportunities to interact in small groups as well as learn from the larger audience. Each participant will leave with a personal action plan for building their capacity to implement best practices as it relates to appropriately identifying and supporting ELs with dyslexia.
