This fall, I attended the IDA in San Antonio, TX. It was so much fun and incredibly informative and engaging. I had been twice before over the last fifteen years or so, and the layout of this year allowed me to attend a range of sessions (much more so than in years past). The most interesting sessions included talks with research connecting literacy gains of LD/ELL students and the connection between the classroom and remediation, mental health and the connection to literacy/LD diagnosis, phenotypes of dyslexia (headed up by the UCSF team), and practical classroom strategies such as the benefits of repeated reading for fluency. I added all of the slides to a folder, so any Burke's colleagues can take a look! I'll also be sharing some of the information during our LS meeting in January. I felt incredibly lucky to go!
