TEACHER TRAINING – DYSLEXIA DISMANTLED
Dr. Cintron offers a full one- day training and a two- day training using brain-based teaching and learning. She also offers a 3-hour workshop to inform teachers and parents of dyslexia. Dr. Cintron trains ten or more teachers in each class. Administrators, you can sign up your school district, invite several districts to train, or select ten of your teachers to train
DYSLEXIA IS NEUROLOGICAL IN ORIGIN. THE SCIENCE SUPPORTS OUR PROGRAM!
Neurologist Dr. Roger Sperry won a Nobel Prize in the 1980s for his Split – Brain Theory from the 1960s. This research is valuable when we see students learn at a rapid pace with our program and music app. We address music and how it impacts the left and right angular gyruses when students learn to read.
LOCATION OF TRAININGS
Trainings are online for now, but when we are no longer sequestered, we will conduct trainings at the dA Center for the Arts in Pomona, CA. We will also conduct trainings at Promise Christian University in Covina, CA. Dr. Cintron will also travel to train teachers, at her own expense.
THREE WAYS TO COVER COSTS OF TRAINING
SCHOLARSHIPS (you must email us to get your name on the list).
PAY PRIVATELY (You must still find 9 other teachers to train with you). Or call for options.
Parents who need help with their children may want to sponsor your training. We still need 10 teachers to train.
