Community Education Series

Reading, Writing, and the Brain

We are happy to have Fraser Academy’s Colleen Chow, Director of Learning Services, presenting on Reading, Writing, and the Brain.

In this presentation, Ms. Chow will share how the brain is organized for the processing of language and learning. She will explain the different pathways used for students with dyslexia and other language-based learning differences during reading and highlight the benefit of multisensory instruction when teaching our students.

This presentation is ideal for parents who would like a deeper understanding of the learning process for students with dyslexia or other LDs in relation to the developing brain.

Fall 2020 – Date TBD
Fraser Academy families, greater community, and educators are invited to attend this session.
