Parent Workshops

The most important thing one can do as a parent of a dyslexic or struggling learner is to get educated.  There is no one who knows a child like the parent or caregiver.  Whether the child is currently in a public school, private school or homeschool, the parent and caregiver will need to be an advocate for the student.  Dr. Fedora’s Parent Workshops were created to guide parents through the process of understanding what dyslexia and other related learning disabilities are and the various ways that help can be provided to them.

The Parent Workshops are for anyone who desires to better understand the many areas of learning affected by dyslexia; adults who are homeschooling students with dyslexia, dysgraphia, Executive Functioning, ADD, or ADHD, parents who need information to advocate for their children with dyslexia.

 

Dyslexia is almost always categorized as a disability since it makes learning to read, write, and spell extremely difficult. However, dyslexia is a neurological condition caused by a difference in brain wiring and not due to a lack of intelligence.  In fact, studies show that many of our most celebrated artists, inventors, musicians, athletes, actors, and actresses have dyslexia and other related learning disabilities. 


Dr. Fedora has dedicated her life to working with children and adults that learn differently.  She has dysgraphia, as do all of her five children and understands how using an individualized, multi-sensory, research based Orton-Gillingham Approach can benefit students who learn “differently” much more “efficiently.”  Her moderated Parent Workshops include: 

 

  • What is Dyslexia and How do I Know if My Child Has It? 

  • The Assessment and Testing Process for the Different Learner

  • An Introduction to the Orton-Gillingham Approach and Why it Works for Young Students Part 1

  • An Introduction to the Advanced Level Orton-Gillingham Approach and Morphology and Why It Works for Older Students Part 2

  • How Dyslexia and Other Related Learning Disabilities Affect Math, Science, Social Studies, and More!
