A Practical Look and Management of Dyslexia in English and Chinese
Did you know it is possible to have dyslexia in Chinese, or English, or even both?
Join us to explore the unique characteristics of these two languages and to gain practical tips on how to manage dyslexia in Chinese and/or English.
Our guest, Professor Catherine McBride, developmental psychologist at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, will share her latest research and discuss the challenges of learning multiple languages, offer suggestions for facilitating self-esteem and provide recommendations for testing and training cognitive-linguistic skills.
Please join us for an evening filled with exceptional advice, shared tips, and useful strategies. We welcome you to share your experiences and learn from others on the journey to support and encourage your child with Dyslexia, ADHD, and/or other SpLDs.
This will be a highly interactive session appropriate for educators and parents of school aged children and adolescents.
