Assessment and Instruction for Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD)/Dyslexia: Exploring Collaborative Roles for Speech-language Pathologists
*This is a two (2) day event - Tuesday, December 13 & Thursday, December 15, 2016 - from 4pm to 6:30pm
Audience: Elementary: Speech and Language Pathologists
Presenter: Donna Merritt, Ph.D., CCC, SERC Consultant
The expertise of many school professionals, including speech and language pathologists (SLPs), is needed by a student’s planning and placement team (PPT) to appropriately identify a Specific Learning Disability (SLD)/Dyslexia and to implement specially designed structured literacy interventions.
In Part 1 of this roundtable colloquium, SLPs will access the resources of SERC’s library to examine speech and language assessment tools that inform the SLD/Dyslexia comprehensive evaluation process. In Part 2 of the series, SLPs will investigate research-based practices that support collaborative and consultative language-literacy interventions.
SLPs participating in this professional learning opportunity will self-assess their collaborative pupil personnel team (PPT) role in the identification of SLD/Dyslexia; expand their repertoire of assessment tools; and support language-literacy instruction for students with SLD/Dyslexia via collaboration and consultation.
