Ohio’s Special Education Leadership Conference begins this week in Columbus, Ohio. The theme of this year’s Conference is Literacy Instruction – Addressing the Needs of Diverse Learners. Sonia Milrod, M.Ed., Professional Development Specialist for Mayerson Academy will be a panelist on the Early Literacy Intervention: Dyslexia Pilot Project on Wednesday afternoon.

During the presentation panelists will share information about the implementation, challenges, successes, lessons learned, progress and outcomes.
