Topics will include brain research, dyslexia, Scarborough’s Rope, the 4 Part Processor and Spear- Swerling’s reading profiles. Participants will use the reading profiles to problem solve struggling readers’ access to content. Instruction will include embedding word origin, morphology, vocabulary and syllabication in order to differentiate.
