I Am Not Stupid! I have DYSLEXIA

40 hour training topic: Working with Children


DATE(S):
October 14, 2021
TIME:
12:00 PM to 1:00PM.
LOCATION:
On-line


BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
This workshop will focus on the social and emotional needs faced by people who learn differently than the average person.  According to the Dyslexia Center of Utah, one in five students or 15% to 20% of the population has a language-based learning disability.  Dyslexia is the most common of the language-based learning disabilities.  Having a language-based learning disability, is not associated with having a low IQ.  In fact, many people with a language-based learning disability are smart and very creative.  In order to survive school, they have to find creative ways to learn new concepts, complete school projects that they do not understand and study twice as hard as the average student in order to receive a B in a class.  When they struggle with grammar, spelling and sounding new words, they face teasing from classmates and negative judgement from teachers.  They can be categorized as lazy, stupid, and unmotivated.  While technology is a helpful resource for many of these people, the social and emotional pressures and judgement can cause them to give up and not reach their full potential.

Objectives:
To provide education on the social and emotional needs of people with a language-based learning disability.
To teach methods that can help this population to overcome the social emotional challenges that they face.
To educate counselors on the importance of being knowledgeable in methods to work with people of all ages with a language-based learning disability.
