At a public meeting on March 1, the Riverhead Special Education PTA will host two speakers who will offer support and advice on helping children with dyslexia.
Danielle Brooks, a special education advocate, will help parents navigate the path toward identifying dyslexia and developing an Individual Education Plan to meet the child’s needs.
Maria Licata, a parent of two children with dyslexia, will discuss Orton-Gillingham, the multi-sensory structured approach to teaching literacy.
Children with dyslexia who are taught coping skills and strategies can overcome the difficulties associated with the condition. The Riverhead Special Education PTA is a resource for families with a dyslexic child.
