Addressing the Needs of Struggling Readers (Webinars)


Webinar Video: Dr. Jan Hasbrouck: Conquering dyslexia


Presented October 14, 2020 by Jan Hasbrouck, Ph.D., Educational Consultant and Author, and Cory Stai, Read Naturally Director of Research

Dyslexia is a reading disability that affects millions of readers. However, with early and appropriate intervention, it is possible to prevent dyslexia from ever becoming a negative factor in a reader’s life.

In this webinar, literacy expert Dr. Jan Hasbrouck  sits down with Read Naturally’s research director Cory Stai for a review of critical understandings of this complex disorder towards the goal of supporting every student with dyslexia to reach his or her full potential.

Topics Covered
  • What is dyslexia (and what is it not)?
  • What are the signs that indicate possible dyslexia, and how is it diagnosed?
  • What do educators need to be sure to teach well, and how should instruction and intervention teach those skills?

The webinar also provides an introduction to two new resources for further learning on dyslexia:
