Lindsay Dryden Speaker Series
Each year, the Lindsay Dryden Speaker Series has brought compelling speakers to The Odyssey School. Parents, psychologists, admission directors, learning specialists and heads of schools from schools and dyslexia affiliated organizations attend these presentations. Notable speakers have included Dr. Bob Brooks, Dr. John Ratey, Dr. Rick Lavoie, Dr. Ed Hallowell, Dr. Angela Duckworth, Dr. John Gabrieli, and 2015 presenter Dr. Russell Barkley.
In celebrating Odyssey's 25th anniversary, we are hosting two Lindsay Dryden speakers. On November 14th, Dr. Gail Saltz is presenting on "The Power of Difference". On May 28th, Dr. David Kilpatrick will be presenting the latest research in reading instruction.
We All Learn Speaker Series
This event, held annually in October, is a partnership with Stevenson University's Kappa Delta Pi honor society. Each year, we welcome a prominent speaker for a presentation intended to engage and connect a community of professionals, parents, and college students, sharing the same commitment and passion for educating students with language learning differences. On October 30th, Dr. Jan Wasowicz is speaking on the efficacy of speech to print reading methodology at the Owings Mills campus on Stevenson University.
