Season 1, Episode 4: Books That Connect Social Emotional Learning and Dyslexia

Season #1

Get ready to talk about the best books that you can use to connect social-emotional learning with your students! In this episode, we share our most favorite books to connect with our students, both younger and older, as well as with parents and educators! You can use books to bridge conversations about learning, dyslexia, and learning differences - either one-on-one or with the whole classroom.

We also answer a listener question: What do you tell a student that their reading difficulty is called if they are not diagnosed with dyslexia?

Tune in to this episode for the best books to connect social-emotional learning and dyslexia!
