Assessment Of Dyslexia For School Psychologists
3 hours running time
The goal of this workshop is to help you better answer three questions: (1) What is dyslexia? (2) What is reading-related phonological processing and how is it related to dyslexia? and (3) What should be assessed if dyslexia is suspected? To answer the question of what is dyslexia, a review of key findings will be provided. Common myths will be discussed in addition to key findings because myths about dyslexia are pervasive. Deficits in phonological processing have been implicated in the development of dyslexia. Because school psychologists are uniquely qualified to assess phonological processing, the workshop will address using the CTOPP-2 and related measures for assessing phonological processing. Additional assessment recommendations will be provided if dyslexia is suspected. Practical issues such as the interface between dyslexia identification and eligibility for special education services because of a specific learning disability will be discussed.
