Free 2023–24 Dyslexia Training Series for Educators

Expert to Discuss Screening and Support for Students

Daniel Silberstein

The Dyslexia Initiative training sessions will be conducted by Daniel Silberstein, M.Ed. from the California Department of Education’s Northern California Diagnostic Center.

According to the International Dyslexia Association, 15–20% of the population may have symptoms of dyslexia, which include slow or inaccurate reading, weak spelling, and writing challenges. The learning process for students with dyslexia is different—with many being strong visual, out-of-the-box thinkers—so teachers need to learn strategies and best practices to identify and support these students.

The California Dyslexia Initiative (CDI) is kicking off the 2023–24 school year with a series of dyslexia training sessions for educators led by Daniel Silberstein, M.Ed. The courses are free and are being conducted in partnership with the CDE Diagnostic Center of Northern California (DCN).

CDI is a grant-funded project led by the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) that aims to help educators address the needs of struggling readers and students with dyslexia. Sign up for the CDI listserv to receive news, updates, and resources.
