2018 Reading, Literacy & Learning Virtual Conference

T11 - Elementary-Grade Intervention Approaches to Treat Specific Learning Disabilities, Including Dyslexia

Oct 25, 2018 11:15am ‐ Oct 25, 2018 12:15pm

Standard: $20.00


In this session, participants learn about intensifying structured language and literacy interventions for elementary students with reading and writing difficulties. This session reviews current literature and describes a process for individualizing and intensifying these practices within a response to intervention (RTI) and multitiered systems of support (MTSS) context. The session applies this knowledge through a case study of a student. Participants receive a resource guide that they can immediately implement with their students.

Learning Objectives:

  • HANDWRITING/WRITTEN LANGUAGE: Identify effective practices and strategies for written language.
  • READING, SKILLS, & STRATEGIES: Examine a collaborative service model designed to deliver literacy services to children and adults with language learning disabilities.
  • TEACHING/INSTRUCTION/INTERVENTION: Examine effective practices for developing writing skills.
