Summer Seminars

Susan Barton, one of America's leading experts in Dyslexia, will present her most popular professional development seminar twice this summer.

Screening for Dyslexia

Phoenix, AZ: June 13 to 18, 2016

Chicago, IL: July 25 to 30, 2016

At this intense graduate-level 6-day seminar, you will learn how to accurately screen children and teenagers for dyslexia.

It takes more than just test scores to accurately determine if a child has dyslexia. You must look at the entire child – their genetic, developmental, and educational history; every prior testing report; their current strengths and weaknesses; and the results from 8 screening tools.

By the end of this course, you will have earned the title Dyslexia Consultant and Screener. That will give you credibility with parents and your local schools. You will then be able to:

Every public and private school should have someone who knows how to do this. Screening would also be extremely valuable for every Reading or Learning Specialist, every Speech-Language Therapist, every School Psychologist, and every Barton tutor.

Registration fee: $1,299

Learn more: Download our Summer Seminar brochure. Details are on page 3 and 4. A registration form is on the last page.

College Credit and ASHA CEUs are available. Details are on page 2 of our Summer Seminar brochure.

What Graduates Say

The Screening for Dyslexia course, by Susan Barton, is not just a course on how to detect Dyslexia. It is so much more! You get extensive, in-depth, up-to-date information on the history and brain science, plus hands-on experience on how to apply it and screen for dyslexia. You also get tons of resources and ready-made documents that help you communicate and implement what you've learned with other professionals and parents.

Whether you are a Reading Specialist, Dyslexia Specialist, Educational Therapist, Special or Regular Ed teacher, or Tutor, Screening for Dyslexia will improve the way you look at, evaluate, and communicate with your students and parents.

Before I took the course, I had no idea how comprehensive it was, so I was baffled why it took six days to teach how to screen for dyslexia. It was well worth my time and money.

Laura Parker
Educational Director
Hands On Learning Solutions

The Screening for Dyslexia seminar is an excellent course for speech-language therapists, teachers, parents, or anyone who desires in-depth information about dyslexia and ways to identify dyslexia.

Susan Barton is a superb presenter and her passion and dedication is contagious. She presents hours of information in such a concise, complete, engaging and professional manner that I found myself wishing the seminar did not have to end.

Theresa Hellen
Speech-Language Pathologist

I have been an R.N. for 35 years, and I have a Master's degree in clinical psychology. I have attended quite a few seminars but I have never attended such well-organized, information-packed, and practical seminar in my career. I learned more useful information about dyslexia in these 6 days than in my entire Master's program.

Within two weeks of completing this course, I have been able to use my training to help three students who have been struggling for years.

Susan Barton is very gifted educator and speaker, and she is dedicated to changing the lives of students with dyslexia.

Cindi Frediani, R.N.
Masters in Clinical Psychology

In 6 powerful days, Susan Barton will forever change what you know and how you look at 20% of our population – those with dyslexia.

If you attend just one training on dyslexia, make it this one. Susan is the best in the field!

During this 48-hour hour course you will cry, laugh, network, and yes, become outraged and impassioned to bring your newly gained knowledge home to change lives – as I did.

Speaker’s Bureau

Susan Barton, the founder of Bright Solutions for Dyslexia, gives presentations on dyslexia all across the country. But she cannot keep up with the demand.

So she contacted all of the graduates of her summer seminars. Many, who were already giving presentations at a local or state level, agreed to become part of a Speakers Bureau on dyslexia. Speakers are now available in 37 states and five countries.

If your organization, school, or conference would like a speaker on dyslexia, whether it is for a short presentation at a service club meeting or a parent support group, a three-hour in-depth workshop, or an all-day inservice training, click here and fill out the form.

Susan Barton will match your request with the most appropriate speaker in your area.
