Dyslexia Initiative hosting first PLN event Oct. 4
September 19, 2022
The California Dyslexia Initiative is hosting a professional learning network to give educators the opportunity to collaborate, share knowledge and learn from leading experts.
The group’s first PLN event is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2022. Registration is free for the online event, which is presented by the Sacramento County Office of Education in partnership with the California Department of Education, the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence, and the California State Board of Education.
Maryanne Wolf, Ed.D., from the UCLA Center for Dyslexia, Diverse Learners, and Social Justice, will be the keynote speaker. She will discuss cognitive neuroscience research into the development of the “reading brain” and how this knowledge informs the understanding of dyslexia and its prediction, assessment and intervention.
Following the keynote, breakout sessions will be led by Resha Conroy, Lillian Duran, Ph.D., Jessica Hamman, and Nancy Cushen White, Ph.D.
Additional professional learning network events are planned, with the next one scheduled for spring 2023.
