  1. Dyslexia Foundations Online Training: Module 1 of the Texas Dyslexia Identification Academy

    All Texas educators who teach students with dyslexia must include new research and practices in educating students with dyslexia as part of their continuing education for educator certificate renewal!  

    Dyslexia Foundations is the first of five modules developed to assist school districts and charter schools in the identification of students with dyslexia.  

    Module 1 is a stand-alone workshop for any educator wanting to know more about dyslexia, but is also a pre-requisite for any educator that will be completing the 5-Module Texas Dyslexia Identification Academy.

    Workshop objectives:

    • define dyslexia and related disorders
    • explore the characteristics and common risk factors of dyslexia at varying age and grade levels
    • explore elements of reading, and review associated academic difficulties and conditions that co-exist with dyslexia.

    THIS WORKSHOP IS COMPLETELY ONLINE.  The course is available through Moodle, so all you need is a web browser to access.  You may access it at your convenience and log in and out as many times as necessary.  The training is divided into fourteen 5-10 minute videos with embedded activities.  There is also a final assessment.  

    An attempt is required on each of the 6 activities and a minimum grade of 70% is needed on the final assessment to receive your certificate.  Two attempts are allowed on the final assessment.  For accountability purposes, you will have up to 60 days from the date of registration to complete the course.  This course will take about 3 hours to complete.

  9. Webinar 4 - Early Childhood Stuttering Therapy: A Practical Approach - Scott Yaruss, PhD/CCC-SLP

    Stuttering iin preschool and young school-age children can be one of the more challenging disorders for speech-language pathologists to treat. Many clinicians are uncertain about which children need treatment and about what therapy techniques help children overcome their difficulties with fluency. This webinar will address those concerns by providing specific examples of assessment strategies, treatment goals, and therapy activities that can be immediately be used in treatment. Particular attention will be paid to strategies for working with parents and to methods for helping children develop healthy, appropriate attitudes toward their communication skills.


  10. Webinar 5 - School-Age Stuttering Therapy: A Practical Approach - Scott Yaruss, PhD/CCC-SLP

    School-age children who stutter can face many challenges, including negative emotional reactions to stuttering, difficulties participating in classroom activities, and limitations while interacting with peers. Unfortunately, many speech-language pathologists report that they are not confident in their ability to help children deal with these consequences of stuttering. This webinar will provide clinicians with applicable, practical strategies for helping school-age children and adolescents who stutter overcome the problems associated with stuttering. The presentation will include: guidelines for assessment that support treatment recommendations and goal-writing, specific recommendations about how to prepare children for therapy to ensure success, and examples of treatment strategies and activities designed to help children improve their fluency, reduce their negative reactions to stuttering, educate others about stuttering, and communicate effectively across speaking situations. Participants will come away from the workshop feeling more confident in their ability to help children who stutter and be more knowledgeable about how to approach stuttering intervention in the school setting and beyond.
