PD Pop: ~Taking the Mask Off of Dysgraphia (K-12) - Presented by Cheri Dotterer

What do you do when students struggle to form letters & demonstrate poor spelling skills? How do you help them get their ideas on paper? A lack of dysgraphia awareness and perceived instructional perspectives prevent many students' successful writing engagement. Join Cheri Dotterer during this interactive session as she covers the area of dysgraphia & practical solutions to helping all students succeed!
