Swift Institute for Learning

The mission of the Swift Institute for Learning is to advance the understanding of dyslexia, language-based learning differences, and related learning difficulties.

The Institute is where parents and education professionals come to learn to better understand and support children who are experiencing difficulties in acquiring language literacy skills. Swift faculty and visiting experts conduct free workshops throughout the school year on subjects ranging from social emotional learning (SEL) and understanding language-based learning differences to dyslexia simulations and instructional technology. Information presented in Swift Institute workshops is based on research and evidence-based practices.

Swift Institute for Learning workshops are open to the Swift community and the general public. Participation is free but reservations are required.

The Institute also offers Orton-Gillingham training courses for a fee.

 

 

EXPERIENCE DYSLEXIA (TOOK PLACE IN SEPTEMBER 2022)

Experience Dyslexia® is a simulation that is designed to increase awareness of the difficulties and frustrations that people with dyslexia (a specific language learning disability) experience daily. Participants left the exercises with insight into working effectively with students with dyslexia and with greater empathy and understanding for the challenges people with this learning difference face. Experience Dyslexia® is engaging, enlightening, quite possibly an emotional experience.
