Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

The Appalachian State University Reading Clinic provides reading instruction to students who struggle with dyslexia and supports these students as they transition through middle and high school. Many of these students master decoding before leaving elementary school, yet they struggle with reading fluency throughout the upper grades. In this session, parents and tutors learn about: (1) accommodations and modifications that support disfluent readers in secondary classrooms, and (2) instructional practices that facilitate the development of reading fluency throughout adolescence.

Learning Outcome:

  • RESEARCH: Examine research findings and implications for practice relevant to students with dyslexia and other language learning disabilities.
