Fall Conference November 3rd, 2018


Validly and reliably identify children with or at risk of dyslexia

With the new State of Washington Dyslexia bill (SB 6162), a spotlight has been put on the importance of identifying and serving children with dyslexia. In this presentation, Dr. Carol Connor will discuss ways to validly and reliably identify children with or at risk of dyslexia, including assessment and multi-tiers systems of support – also known as response to intervention (RTI). Early identification will also be discussed since prevention is more effective than remediation. Once children have been identified, evidence-based interventions can prevent the most serious symptoms of dyslexia. This presentation will then discuss the kinds of interventions that can improve children’s reading skills including phonological awareness, language and comprehension.
