Hope for Struggling Readers :

Dr. Gocey will help you get a read on dyslexia, a specific type of learning disorder, and discuss the latest research on the needs of dyslexic students.  A quick review of terms will clear up confusion about the different labels used in schools, clinics, and research. A prescription for advocacy and collaboration based on research and individual student needs will help everyone get on the same page to help kids.
