Northborough – Executive Director of Decoding Dyslexia – Massachusetts Nancy Duggan will present a workshop, “A Clear and Structured Process for Effective Reading Goals” Saturday, April 13, 1-3 p.m. at the Northborough Library, 34 Main Street. Participants will learn what you need to know about the science of reading, understand how to apply the correct data for making Individualized Education Program (IEP) decisions, know if the instruction your child is receiving is targeting the needs of your child, and know if your child’s instruction is meeting the standards of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) law. Parents are encouraged to bring copies of student evaluations and IEPs.
Duggan was recently honored and received the 2018 Alice H. Garside Award for her dedicated, inspiring, and effective grassroots leadership in support of struggling readers. She is a school counseling professional, Orton-Gillingham reading therapist, and educational consultant and has provided professional development in reading, dyslexia and learning disabilities for public and private schools and departments of education in many states.
The event is co-sponsored by the Northborough-Southborough, Shrewsbury and Westborough Special Education Parent Advisory Councils.
