Drs. Sally E. Shaywitz, M.D., and Bennett A. Shaywitz, M.D., co-directors of the Yale Center for Dyslexia and Creativity, will speak about the paradox of intelligent individuals who have difficulty reading. They will discuss screening, diagnosis, evidence-based interventions, and new educational approaches.
The Drs. Shaywitz will talk about the importance of recognizing the abilities of children with dyslexia, including examples of people with dyslexia who are at the very top of their career fields.
Copies of Dr. Sally Shaywitz’ award-winning, best-selling book, Overcoming Dyslexia, will be available for purchase, and she will sign copies after the presentation.
