Planning for What’s to Come: An Overview of School Level Implementation of the Right to Read

August 18, 2023 @ 7:00 am - 1:30 pm MDT


EXPERT: Joanne Bertrand,  Vice-president and Chair of Webinars and Training, International Dyslexia Association (IDA) Ontario

Joanne Bertrand will facilitate this ‘deeper dive’ into Multi-tiered systems of support as the framework for the implementation of the Ontario Human Rights Commission’s (OHRC) Right to Read Report (R2R) recommendations and the new Ontario Language Arts Curriculum. Participants will consider:

  • What are the key areas of change?  
  • What needs to change in our schools?  
  • What can we continue doing?  

Una Malcolm, President of IDA Ontario will answer questions related to the curriculum and early screening. Alicia Smith, Executive Director of Dyslexia Canada will also provide guidance.  

Principals and vice-principals who have been successfully achieving Multi-tiered System of Supports (MTSS) implementation of the R2R recommendations will share their experiences relative to staff education, support and training, early screening, progress monitoring and the incorporation of structured literacy into their students’ learning. In addition, a teacher who was supported by a principal will describe her experience. 

The workshop will be recorded and resources will be provided to registered participants.
