Dyslexia Case Studies
Friday, February 24, 2017
The process of dyslexia identification is complex and dynamic, starting with screening and moving through progress monitoring. With the introduction of the term “dyslexia” into the educational legislation of many states, there is a renewed need for clarity on the subject. The presenter will discuss a model that accounts for what we know to be true about dyslexia features in combination with what we know about factors relating to dyslexia. Through a case study format, this presentation will outline a hybrid model for dyslexia evaluation, highlighting several Pearson assessments.
After the completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the components of a hybrid model for dyslexia screening and identification.
- List two examples of screening and assessment measure types.
- Describe a process for the interpretation of dyslexia screening and assessment findings.
