T6 - The Secret to Increasing Student Literacy Outcomes Lies in Understanding the Diagnostic Profile

Oct 25, 2018 10:00am ‐ Oct 25, 2018 11:00am

Standard: $20.00


This session discusses the critical aspects of the diagnostic evaluation to be considered when creating an intervention program designed to meet the individual needs of students with dyslexia. While it is known what guides effective reading intervention, there are key factors identified within the diagnostic report that must be recognized to provide the most targeted intervention. This understanding will result in the most significant growth for struggling readers. Implications for both diagnosticians and interventionists are explored.

Learning Objectives:

  • ASSESSMENT: Examine language/learning assessment process and practices for students with learning disabilities/dyslexia.
  • MULTISENSORY STRUCTURED LANGUAGE INSTRUCTION: Recognize the nature of dyslexia and related language learning disabilities and the role of multisensory structured language instruction (MSL).
  • READING, SKILLS, & STRATEGIES: Outline the critical components for proficient reading including language development, phonological awareness, decoding, fluency and comprehension.
