Dyslexia is a disorder with well-documented emotional, behavioral, and social impacts on students with dyslexia and their families, along with the academic challenges. The actual impact of these concerns varies in part because dyslexia itself varies—in both the severity of the impairment (mild, moderate, severe) and the way in which individuals and their families are able to respond to their learning challenges.

Our understanding of dyslexia has deepened over the past two decades, due in part to new technologies being used by researchers to study the complex brain functions involved in reading and writing. Research has focused on both the neurobiological factors involved, including brain structures and the contribution of genetics, as well as the instructional processes that have proven to be effective in building a reading brain. While the International Dyslexia Association has developed a definition of dyslexia based on a convergence of reading science, there still is not universal agreement on how to define it. A number of myths and misunderstandings continue to persist regarding this neurobiological disorder which must be addressed and dispelled.

Participants in the full workshop will:
1. Know about the current research on dyslexia.
2. Know the various ways that dyslexia has been defined and described.
3. Know common myths and misunderstandings about dyslexia.
4. Discuss issues around identifying students with dyslexia.
5. Understand why we can now conclude that with appropriate instruction and intervention students with dyslexia can be taught to read at a level at or close to grade level expectations.
