Always Learning, Always Growing

The dePaul School values professional development for our teachers and staff. Staying informed on recent research in the field of dyslexia and related learning disabilities and being aware of new curriculum and technology options for our students is a high priority in our school. November provides many opportunities for us to do just that. dePaul will have attendees at the Florida Council of Independent Schools Conference (FCIS), the International Dyslexia Association (IDA) International Conference and the edTech Teacher Summit in Boston -  all this month!

New YouTube Series for Kids with Dyslexia

Dyslexiaville has launched the first eight episodes of its new web series by and for dyslexics called the Super d! Show. The short videos focus less on teaching reading and more on coping with the challenges of dyslexia and other learning disabilities. Topics include everything from bullying and struggles with schoolwork to anxiety and embarassment. The actors, all of whom are dyslexic or have ADHD, explore the problems they experience in real life while sharing strategies and instilling confidence. www.dyslexiaville.com
