Framingham, October 13th, 2017. The Language of Math: Innovative Math Instruction for Students with Dyslexia, is for K-12 educators and advocates. While unexpected difficulties with reading and writing remain the hallmark of dyslexia, nearly half of all students with language-based learning disabilities present with co-occurring and often overlooked math difficulties.
This conference will feature keynote addresses and hands-on seminars from learning and mathematics experts across the fields of education, neuropsychology, and clinical research. Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding of the specific learning disabilities that impact student success in mathematics, as well as practical and evidence-based strategies for supporting struggling learners.
