It is necessary for educators to understand and describe students strengths and weaknesses to design a treatment plan, deliver appropriate instruction, and, thus, determine effectiveness. This session addresses methods for understanding and describing students language, reading, spelling, and written language skills. Participants learn a procedure for gathering relevant background information, practice the collection and analysis of data, and align this information with evidence-based treatment. A continual process for determining effectiveness is also included.
