Dyslexia 101 Workshop with Jasmin Dean
Dyslexia affects one in five children. It is an unexpected difficulty with reading, writing, and spelling in an individual who has the intelligence to be a much better reader. A teacher that is equipped with information on dyslexia can be a lifeline to a struggling student.
In this workshop for educators, we’ll learn how some students experience dyslexia, as well as ways to empower you to teach them. Then, we’ll see Eddie and Vinnie, created specifically for Magik Theatre through a collaboration with Celebrate Dyslexia.
This workshop will be led by Jasmin Dean, Co-Founder and Executive Director at Celebrate Dyslexia. In 2019, Ms. Dean approached Magik Theatre about creating a play because of Magik Theatre’s impact on her son, who has dyslexia. Watching performances at Magik Theatre helped give him with access to literature as the words jumped off the page and became meaningful.
We look forward to seeing you at the workshop!
