More elementary-aged students are being identified with dyslexia, but schools do not use the term despite public pressure to do so. This webinar will show that reading disabilities have always existed in K-12 schools and will discuss differences between educational and clinical diagnoses. We will also discuss signs of future reading problems, considerations for selecting screening tools for dyslexia, and interventions methods that can improve both reading performance and dyslexia screening accuracy.
Participants will be able to:
- Identify common myths regarding early warning signs for dyslexia.
- Use psychometric properties and base rates to critically evaluate processes and tools used to screen for dyslexia
- Implement a classwide intervention as part of the dyslexia screening process.
