Event Details

Identifying Students Who are Gifted and Talented and Have Specific Learning Disabilities (SLDs) or SLD/Dyslexia

*This is an online course

 
Audience:

K-Grade 12: General and Special Education Teachers, Reading Specialists, Literacy Coaches, Student Support Services Professionals, Directors/Supervisors of Special Education, and Principals

Description:

     Schools can be challenged to meet the needs of students who are Gifted and Talented and who may also have a specific learning disability (SLD), including Dyslexia, that impacts their success in school. Many Gifted-SLD students are not identified until later in their educational career, which can affect their academic progress and self-concept.


     This awareness-level one-hour online module will discuss how to identify students who are Gifted-SLD in the context of Connecticut’s 2010 Guidelines for Identifying Children with Learning Disabilities. Specifically, it will show how to use data from curriculum-based assessments as well as standardized measures of cognitive and reading ability when identifying students in this group. Participants completing this online module will be able to summarize the characteristics of students who are Gifted-SLD; and analyze data from curriculum-based assessments as well as standardized measures of cognitive ability and reading to identify students fitting this profile.
