We are excited to share that our friend, Rick Lavoie, is coming back to Michigan this March! He will be the keynote speaker for the Michigan Reading Association’s 2016 Pre-Conference which will focus on supporting children with learning disabilities in the Language Arts classrooms.
Those of you who attended the LDA of Michigan conferences in the past may recognize a few of our very own, such as Dr. James Grant, Nanette Clatterbuck and Amy Barto. There will also be sessions with other local experts such as Dr. Joanne Pierson, Stephanie Cork, and Heidi Turchan.
Session topics will include strategies related to multisensory reading and writing, assessment of reading comprehension difficulties, preparing students with reading disabilities for post-secondary success, strategies for reading writing in the co-taught classroom, phonological awareness and remediation at the secondary level.
The 2016 MRA Conference continues over Saturday and Sunday and includes a special focus on Early Childhood topics on Monday, March 21. Monday’s conference day also includes free registration for parents!
