BL Faculty In-service Provides Learning Difference Simulations

Bishop Lynch High School faculty members participated in a special in-service event last week to better understand student learning differences. John Hodges, instructor of therapy at the June Shelton School and Evaluation Center in Dallas, led the presentation. During the afternoon in-service, faculty members experienced simulations of learning differences and participated in an expanded Q&A discussion.

Rachele Piazza, Bishop Lynch’s director of teaching and learning, organized the in-service opportunity for BL teachers to acquire additional resources to help students dealing with dyslexia, auditory processing disorder, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and other learning differences.

“This teacher in-service was a great way for teachers to gain awareness, compassion and classroom strategies to enhance our services to students with learning differences and even for all learners. We came away with a broader knowledge of available resources,” said Mrs. Piazza.
Faithful to Catholic Tradition and to our Dominican heritage of scholarship and service, Bishop Lynch High School promotes the development of the total person by bringing together a diverse community in a rigorous, college preparatory environment where students are taught to strive for excellence, seek truth, and work for justice in the world. - Founded in 1963
