Children with dyslexic children need sequential, multi-sensory and explicit experience with the sounds and symbols of our language to read fluently. The richly prepared environment provides a plethora of language experiences for the primary and elementary aged child. This workshop will cover characteristics of dyslexia, recommendations of the US National Reading Panel, and how to support the dyslexic child in a Children’s House and then through Cosmic Education.
