Bernice has learning differences. The oldest of their four children is ADHD; the other three are dyslexic. The Morgans are a good argument for the widely held belief that dyslexia and learning differences run in families. What makes the Morgans interesting, however, is not that they are all alternative learners. Rather, it is the grace and good humor with which they manage the stresses, pressures, and conflicts of their different learning styles. The Morgans have much to teach all of us. They share their story, generously and courageously. Conference Schedule Morning Session 10:45-12:00 □ Joanie Gerken, Fellow/AOGPE, Demonstration of Orton-Gillingham Lesson, Beginning Level Repeated at 1:15 □ Mary Silgals , MLIS Learning Disabilities and the K-12 Reluctant Reader: Motivating Johnny to Read Who are these reluctant readers? How should teachers respond to students who have little motivation to read? The answer: know the student, know the books and seek creative ways to connect the two!! This session will give practical strategies to help! □ Marcia Mann, Fellow/ AOGPE Language – Learning Problems of the Adolescent: Identification, Impact, Intervention The language and learning problems of the adolescent are often complicated by years of academic failure and ineffective teaching. This session will focus on the nature and needs of these youngsters, and will present strategies for promoting academic success □ Janet Jones, Fellow/ AOGPE Moose Materials: Mastery and Motivation through Multisensory Activities and Games Reading and spelling are more than learning sounds and syllables in isolation. Attaching meaning to decodable words helps students move to automatic word recognition, while improving their vocabulary. Discover a variety of activities to engage your students as they travel the road to mastery and application. □ Dr. James Ward, MD The Genetics and Neurobiology of Dyslexia and ADHD A research based discussion of how and why dyslexia and ADHD affect our lives 12:00-1:00 Lunch (included in pre-registration fee) SCIDA Membership Annual Meeting Afternoon Sessions 1:15-2:30 □ Joanie Gerken, Fellow/AOGPE Demonstration of Orton-Gillingham Lesson, Beginning Level repeat of 10:05 session □ Heidi Bishop, Fellow/AOGPE Multisensory Teaching and the Brain A hands-on presentation of the brain and why multisensory teaching is so instrumental for the dyslexic child □ Marisa Nava, Ph.D., Licensed Clinical Psychologist, & Livy Fogle, Ph.D., Licensed School Psychologist Schools and Families Collaborating to Promote Social Skills Participants will learn strategies to promote social skills at home and at school. □ Susan Perry Gurganus, PhD. College of Charleston Adapting General Education Mathematics Programming for Students with Learning Disabilities The session will provide an overview of a planning strategy for adapting general education lessons, units, or other curricular materials so that students with learning disabilities maintain access to the standards-based curriculum. Participants will practice the strategy with typical mathematics texts. □ Mary Alice Satterfield, SCISA Master Teacher It’s Concrete , but It’s Not Carved in Stone This hands-on writing workshop presents a concrete procedure for building skill as a writer using a structured, sequential approach with multi-sensory techniques that benefit all learners. The presentation focuses on a global view of the “big writing picture.” It begins with a way to generate ideas, proceeds to format the Basic Paragraph through the use of a Web Sheet (graphic organizer), and progresses to the Expanded Paragraph. It concludes with an explanation of the logical next step— the Multi-paragraph Essay. □ Susie van der Vorst, Fellow/AOGPE Digging into the Roots of our Language A cognitive approach to teaching prefixes, roots and suffixes 2:45-4:00 □ Therese Kristiansen, SCISA Master Teacher Strengthen Students’ Writing The session will cover six simple strategies that will help students become better writers, especially in the area of developing their ideas. These strategies can be used in both creative and expository writing. Grades 4 – 12 □ Donna Lange Math Motivators This session is designed to give 6th – 12th grade students with learning disabilities a practical approach to learning measurement, Algebra, Geometry and Statistics.
