    2. knowledge of the cognitive and linguistic factors that contribute to dyslexia

    3. awareness of assessment techniques for diagnosing dyslexia

She has published numerous articles and books and conducts workshops on assessment and instruction both nationally and internationally. She is a co-author of the Woodcock-Johnson IV and has co-authored two books on interpretation and application of this test.

    FOR STUDENTS WITH LEARNING AND ATTENTION DIFFERENCES, THEIR FAMILIES AND THE EDUCATORS THAT SUPPORT THEM

    YOUR TARGET MARKET IS HERE  -  YOU SHOULD BE TOO!!!

    Meet Your Target Market
    Parents, students and educators gather annually at EdRev to enhance their knowledge and skills, to connect with their community and to learn about current research, resources, learning strategies and technology innovations.  Attendees actively seek information from leading vendors, want to experience hands-on demonstrations and be exposed to new products and services which will improve the quality of their lives and experiences, at home and in the classroom.

    What makes EdRev Unique?
    EdRev, conceived of and first brought to life by Parents Education Network (PEN) in 2009, provides a unique day of interaction, understanding and information for students, parents and educators, exploring ways to create new educational environments that fit the individual, instead of making the individual fit the environment.

    EdRev features:

    • The latest technology that supports learning
    • A wide range of informative, relevant workshops
    • Over 100+ vendors showcasing innovative products, solutions and services
    • A juried student art contest
    • Student celebration with multiple activities held on the baseball field

    EdRev 2013 drew over 2,000+ attendees from the Bay Area and beyond.

    Meet Parents Education Network
    PEN is a grassroots, non-profit organization founded in 2003 by a group of parents whose children have learning and attention differences, and who individually struggled to find the information, services, and expertise needed to help their children succeed academically. They did not want other parents to experience the isolation and frustration they encountered. The founders came to believe strongly that parents and educators must work collaboratively to help children with learning and attention differences understand their individual strengths and challenges. PEN hopes to ignite an education revolution across the country that will acknowledge, appreciate and effectively teach all students, including those with learning and attention differences.
