October 25th & 26th, 2017
PC READS hosted Barbara and Ed Wilson, Co-founders of Wilson Language Training, on October 25th and 26th. Upon their arrival to town, they visited McPolin and Trailside Elementary schools, where they observed teachers using Wilson Fundations in their classrooms. Later that evening, Barbara gave a wonderful presentation, open to our community, entitled Navigating Reading Success. She shared the importance of early for reading difficulties and explained the difference between screening and a more comprehensive evaluation for students with dyslexia. Barbara also provided an excellent overview of structured literacy, focusing on key instructional needs for students with dyslexia.
The following morning, Barbara attended PCSD’s Wilson Implementation Task Force meeting and also met with a small group of PC READS volunteers.
