IDA Ontario Conference 2020

IDA Ontario’s 13th

Literacy & Learning Conference

Unlocking Potential

April 25, 2020, Ontario Science Centre, Toronto – Or Live Stream

A conference for educators and parents

“Unlocking Potential” for dyslexic students requires finding the keys to both literacy and self-esteem. For many students, early literacy struggles cause lasting negative impacts on self-esteem and confidence. Through structured literacy instruction these students can overcome their challenges with reading and writing, however, it is equally important to address the social-emotional impacts of dyslexia.

Conference breakout sessions will be divided into two streams, one stream will focus on literacy instruction and the other stream will address the social-emotional aspects of dyslexia.

Keynote Speaker:  DEAN BRAGONIER

Founder and Executive Dyslexic of NoticeAbility, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping students with dyslexia identify their unique strengths and build self-esteem.
