CEU Course Description

Reading is a complex task, requiring several regions of the brain to work together.  This task is made even trickier because the brain is not naturally wired to learn to read. Students with learning disabilities struggle with understanding the relationship between sounds, letters and words, and with comprehending the meaning of words, phrases, and paragraphs.  Research indicates that numerous strategies are effective to help students increase their reading skills and to help teachers work most effectively with LD students.  In this course, participants will learn (1) the central components of reading and how the brain learns to read; (2) how learning disabilities impact reading; (3) how to identify characteristics of students with learning disabilities in reading; and (4) research-based reading strategies and evaluation methods to use in the classroom.
