Category: Academic Supports (On-site)
Posted on 10/22/2020

Foundations, Screenings, and Assessments: This course series will provide participants with a foundational overview of dyslexia. The definition of the disorder, the various types of dyslexia, the associated brain functions, and the academic manifestation of dyslexia will be discussed. Additionally, participants will learn about the laws and guidelines related to the school identification of dyslexia. Reading/literacy fundamentals and the needs of special populations (i.e., English Language Learners, and gifted/talented) will be explored.

Having this foundational overview will enable participants to understand the assessment and screening process for dyslexia and will enable them to identify targeted instructional practices within the MTSS/RtI continuum. In addition, participants will spend time identifying screening/evaluation tools typically employed in the identification of dyslexia.
