This webinar begins by discussing dyslexia definitions, characteristics, and legislation, followed by a detailed discussion of phonological and orthographic processing. The focus then shifts to assessment strategies and examples of dyslexia-specific measures. This is followed by recommendations for screening and evaluating young children for dyslexia and an introduction to a recently released, norm-referenced screener. Case studies and interventions, especially for orthographic processing are included.
