As a graduate student of education, I'm eager to learn tools for the classroom and to be ready for the changes taking place within education. Everyone Reading gave me the valuable opportunity to volunteer at their conference and attend sessions. I learned so much to take with me into the classroom!
This is truly a valuable organization. As a special educator for over 30 years in the NYC Public Schools, I have come across many students who have the difficulties associated with dyslexia in the areas of reading , math and writing yet this is not a classification that we can use on an IEP. The Department of Education does not even offer any training to support teachers in this area. I have attended the past 5 conferences as well as professional development opportunities at Everyone Reading and as a direct result of these experiences, I have been able to help my students become readers!
This organization was my savor when I first learned that My daughter had dyslexia. Attending workshops and having the help line (Diane) was very calming for me. It gave me a place where I can ask questions and I knew that I would get the correct answer.
I also attended many workshops that helped me learn what I could do for my daughter. I also learned a great deal on understanding the New York Department of Education. They provided answers that no one at the BOE would share.
Thank you for such a great organization
