F6 - The Importance of Oral-Language Skills in Reading Comprehension: Making Sure the Intervention Is Driven by a Good Assessment

Oct 28, 2016 10:30am ‐ Oct 28, 2016 11:30am

Standard: $20.00


Students with dyslexia often struggle with reading comprehension. The most obvious reason is due to weaknesses in decoding/word recognition; however, these students can also demonstrate deficits in higher-level language comprehension. And, in those with more generalized reading disorders, weaknesses in other aspects of oral-language comprehension will interfere significantly with comprehension of written texts. Knowing why a student struggles to comprehend written text is paramount to determining the kind of intervention that will be required. Therefore, the right assessment is key.
