2020 VIRTUAL Central Texas Dyslexia Conference Global Possibilities
The 6th annual Central Texas Dyslexia Conference will be held virtually this year! Each year the event brings together parents, educators, and community leaders to learn how to best support the academic and emotional needs of students with dyslexia.
AISD’s annual conference brings together leaders in education, teachers, researchers, parents, dyslexia therapists, advocates, and other professionals to learn how to best prepare students with dyslexia to develop their strengths, overcome their obstacles, and be prepared for global possibilities. Putting research into practice, equipping educators with the knowledge and resources they need, and incorporating a strengths-based approach is critical in helping students build the motivation, resilience and self-confidence needed to reach their full potential inside the classroom and beyond.
