Dyslexia: How difficult can it be?

A regional event for parents, educators, administrators, and students.


Saturday, September 16, 2017     8 to noon                       UNM-Taos, Klauer Campus

A light breakfast will be served from 8-8:30

Parents and All Educators:

8:30 – 10:00 Participate in Six Simulated Activities which mimic the experiences and processing of those with dyslexia. Gain a better appreciation and understanding for what some individuals deal with on a daily basis – in school and on the job.


10:30 – 12:00 Dyslexia 101: What dyslexia is (and isn’t) and the interventions that have been shown, through solid research, to have a positive impact. There will be time for questions and answers with resource information available.


Students with Dyslexia (ages 10+ recommended)

8:30 – 12:00. Students will participate in a series of fun challenges to deepen their understanding of how the brain works and what they can do to increase their success in school and life. They will learn about “growth mindset” and the “power of yet” from Rayna Dineen, Education Consultant from Santa Fe. Then Annalise Zosel and Stephanie Owens, both Taos educators and parents of students with dyslexia, will facilitate the next step – where do students go from here and how do they stay connected and supportive of each other?
