Laurel OverbyDyslexia is the most prevalent Learning Disability among TCU students. Increasing our understanding of this disability – and its impact on instruction – will be the focus of this 90-minute Teaching-Learning Conversation.

Join TCU’s Disabilities Specialists, Sharon Kassler and Laurel Overby, from the Center for Academic Services, for an interactive opportunity to consider these questions:

  • Who has dyslexia, and what are the characteristics of TCU students with dyslexia?
  • How does early identification impact on the likelihood for academic achievement?
  • When students are diagnosed as adults, what are the implications?
  • Where does this conversation intersect with your classroom instruction?
  • What are faculty responsibilities for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act?
  • How can your instruction prepare dyslexic students for the workplace?
