About This Course

NoticeAbility is a non-profit organization creating a new paradigm for educating middle and high school students with dyslexia. Traditional school curricula centers around educating typically developing children, which can exclude students with dyslexia. In training educators to teach and support students with dyslexia, NoticeAbility serves to unlock the educational, social, and professional potential of these students.

We provide professional development for educators serving these students. In this professional development course, you will acquire an understanding of dyslexia, and learn how to support the strengths of students with dyslexia with a variety of pedagogical techniques. You will also understand the importance of developing students’ social-emotional learning and executive functions, and discover how our curriculum supports these outcomes through practice. After completing the professional development, you will have access to all the materials necessary to lead a 10-week blended-learning project-based curriculum specifically designed with dyslexic students in mind.

Dean

Dean - NoticeAbility Founder and Executive Dyslexic

I was diagnosed with dyslexia in 3rd grade. School was never easy. I found myself working three times harder than everybody else. When I graduated from college, however, the world changed for me. I became an entrepreneur when I was 23 years old and I realized that dyslexia gave me a competitive advantage. I created NoticeAbility to give younger dyslexics the tools to discover and harness this power for themselves.
