How to Screen for Dyslexia
PDX Reading Specialist
It takes four times as long to intervene in fourth grade as it does in late kindergarten because of brain development and the increase in content for students to learn as they grow older (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development). As a result, screening for the warning signs of dyslexia has become a top priority for educators working with early elementary students. But how do you screen? What does the data mean? How do you communicate with parents?
In this engaging, information-filled session, Barbara Steinberg will share with attendees:
- The components of a dyslexia screener
- How to administer a screener
- How to interpret the data
- What to do once you’ve screened
