October is Dyslexia Awareness Month
Lexplore is a proud partner of Microsoft
Join Microsoft and Dyslexia DecodED in a four-part virtual series dedicated to exploring research, strategies, and technologies that can help educators support students with this common learning difference. Learning about dyslexia provides an opportunity for educators to empower all learners to discover their strengths and positively shift the entire curve. Research has shown that when the educational strategies that support students with dyslexia are implemented across the entire classroom, outcomes improve for every learner.
