Founder of Decoding Dyslexia organization to present workshop on reading goals

March 2 @ 10:00 am

Northborough – Founder and Executive Director of Decoding Dyslexia Massachusetts Nancy Duggan will present a workshop, “A Clear and Structured Process for Effective Reading Goals.” The presentation is scheduled for Saturday, March 2, at 10 a.m., at the Northborough Free Library, 34 Main St. RSVPs are encouraged at [email protected].

Nancy Duggan recently was 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.

Participants will learn 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.

The event is co-sponsored by the Northborough-Southborough, Shrewsbury and Westborough special education parent advisory councils.
