To whomever it concerns–I wrote my dissertation for my doctoral degree on college dyslexic students and writing strategies that could be used in universities for teaching composition in an inclusive classroom. My goal is to bring awareness of dyslexia to college composition professors. As you know, dyslexic students–even in college–have problems with writing. One of my population samples for my dissertation was a number of composition instructors at East Central University in Ada. My other sample was dyslexic students or graduates living in the U.S who had a formal diagnosis of dyslexia. My multiple case study was qualitative in nature.
Do you know of any places in Oklahoma where I could present research findings at a conference or organization?
This website tracks legislation and doesn’t focus on academic research. Perhaps you might want to contact some of the people who supported this legislation directly for suggestions.
