Effective reading instruction is key to the success of all children, and even more so for those who struggle. Added supports in content instruction are also important. This Dyslexia Forum will address when and how students with dyslexia are impacted when participating in classroom instruction, completing homework or demonstrating content learning. For people with dyslexia, Assistive Technology can provide tools that ease the demands of reading and writing and allow them to learn and function more independently.

Diagnostic Center, Central CA (DCC) Dyslexia Forums provide updates and information regarding dyslexia related research and events, the CA Dyslexia Guidelines and evidence-based language/literacy instruction and intervention.
