Non profit dyslexia tutor training

Dyslexia: News from the web:

The basic goal is to provide affordable, qualified and certified tutors to help local children learn to read by sending a small group of educators to a three-day training program at the University of Utah Reading Clinic in Salt Lake City. Because the focus is on actual educators, local schools will benefit from having these trained tutors using their knowledge in the classroom as teachers. But the teachers will also work as private tutors outside the classroom walls, working one-on-one with dyslexic children.

Collegeboard accommodations approvals

Dyslexia: News from the web:

Beginning January 1, 2017, the vast majority of students who are approved for and using testing accommodations at their school through a current Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 Plan will have those same accommodations automatically approved for taking the SAT®, PSAT10, PSAT/NMSQT®, SAT Subject Tests, and AP® Exams. Most private school students with a current, formal school-based plan that meets College Board criteria will also have their current accommodations automatically approved for College Board exams. This streamlined process builds on the College Board’s August 2016 expansion of testing accommodations that can be approved directly by schools without the need for additional documentation.
