“Students with dyslexia or learning difficulties often face challenges, not only in reading, but in other subject areas,” said Dr. Maureen Martin, director of the DuBard School for Language Disorders. “The proven multisensory techniques that are so beneficial in developing reading skills are applied in this workshop to the subject of math. Ms. (Marilyn) Zecher will instruct teachers and therapists in applying multisensory techniques to create success in math.”
