Join us for a day filled with education and practical information for teachers, parents, and professionals on how to help children with dyslexia and other learning disabilities succeed in the classroom. Paula Morraine, M.Ed will give a keynote in the morning and the afternoon will contain breakout sessions that attendees can choose from.

Keynote: Paula Morraine, M.Ed

Paula Moraine, M.Ed., has been a teacher and tutor for elementary grades, high school and college students, as well as a mentor, coach, and adult educator in teacher training programs in the US, Germany, and Scotland. She has lectured widely in the US and abroad on themes of Dyslexia, ADHD, Executive Function, Parenting, and Teaching. She is the author of ‘Helping Students Take Control of Everyday Executive Functions – The Attention Fix’ (2012) and “Autism and Everyday Executive Functions” (2015).

With the new report from the Iowa Dyslexia Task Force, this is an area that everyone in education should be aware of and this is a great opportunity to learn about Dyslexia and how it effects students.
We encourage AEA’s and administrators to  forward this information to all teachers, staff, parents, teachers in training or anyone they feel may be interested.
