October is dyslexia awareness month! You may recall that there have been two previous editions of the Academic Quarterly’s Reading Expert devoted to dyslexia. The Spring 2018 edition focused on Misconceptions about Dyslexia and the Winter 2018 edition focused on the difference between screening for reading difficulties and evaluating for dyslexia. To access these previous editions please click here. Also, last fall, CORE published a white paper on Dyslexia. This edition of the Reading Expert describes Structured Literacy and couches it within the context of High-Leverage Practices in Special Education. In this edition’s Marvelous Mathematician, we discuss the needs of students with disabilities learning math and how teachers can provide instruction to meet these needs. And in the Leadership Corner, we will introduce an advanced coaching tool for school leaders called digiCOACH.
We’re also excited to release the new online format for the Academic Quarterly. Rather than having to open and download a PDF to read the articles, they are now all posted online so you can quickly click and read. You still have the option to save each article as a PDF or to print them. The new format provides you with lots of options for reading and sharing the information. Enjoy!
