In order to best serve students, it is important to understand the components of a comprehensive assessment used to evaluate students for dyslexia. This workshop will address a wide range of skill areas and the reasons for assessing each of these areas. Participants will become familiar with commonly used assessment instruments and will learn how results of a comprehensive evaluation can aid in planning therapy to remediate deficit areas. Sample evaluation reports will be presented, and participants will learn how to analyze and interpret these reports to develop a profile of student strengths and weaknesses.

Suggested participants:

  • Speech-language pathologists
  • Psychologists
  • Psychometrists
  • Special education directors
  • Dyslexia therapists
  • Reading specialists
  • Academic language therapists
Workshop will cover:
  • Overview of assessment terminology and scores
  • Screening tests
  • Standardized tests
  • Case studies
  • Recommendations for therapy based on evaluation results
Note: While this workshop will provide participants with information about understanding comprehensive evaluations for dyslexia and learning disorders, completion of this workshop does not qualify the participant to administer assessments, diagnose or treat individuals with dyslexia/reading disorders.
