Event Details

Presenter:

Laura Denton, EdD, NCED

Intended Audience:

General Education Teachers, Special Education Teachers,

Reading Specialists, Administrators, School Psychologists

 

California legislation (AB1369, fall 2015) set in motion new steps for how California

educators will handle the reading disability called dyslexia. AB1369 changed California’s

eligibility criteria for Specific Learning Disability (SLD) to include “phonological

processing” in the description of basic psychological processes considered. A

workgroup developed program guidelines, published online in August 2017, in time for

implementation during the 2017-18 school year. This workshop addresses these

changes in practical terms.

Participants will learn:

  • The California-adopted definition of dyslexia
  • How to determine if a student is “at risk” for dyslexia (screening).
  • How to design interventions to address the student’s needs.
  • Tests and procedures for assessing dyslexia.
  • Ways to discuss dyslexia with parents and colleagues.


Special Instructions:

Participants may bring anonymous student profiles for discussion, if desired.

Please contact the presenter about what information to bring.
