Dyslexia Buddy Network – Champion Chats

The Dyslexia Buddy Network (DBN) invites you to join us for the first of many Champion Chats.

Reading Instruction Advisory Group

Part of the Dyslexia Legislation that was passed in July 2014 included the formation of an advisory panel to develop a teacher training module on multi-sensory, explicit, systematic reading instruction.  While funding was not designated to create this group, the Illinois State Board Of Education felt it was important enough to push forward.  This is the link ISBE has provided to follow the groups development. http://www.isbe.state.il.us/spec-ed/html/RIAG.htm
