Learn the signs and symptoms of dyslexia; how it is evaluated; how it affects reading, writing and math; and the specific instruction and help your child may need. Presenting will be Dr. Margie Gillis, Ed.D., president of North Haven-based Literacy How, which specializes in translating “gold standard” literacy research into practice at all levels, with an emphasis on PreK to Grade 3. Dr. Gillis is also a research affiliate at both Fairfield University and at Haskins Laboratories, a New Haven-based nonprofit research institute that focuses on speech, language, and reading and their biological basis.
