Description

How do schools and school systems support students with dyslexia and their families? This session features findings from a qualitative study involving administrator, teacher, and parent experiences with supporting students with dyslexia in public schools across central New York. As much as the science of reading has been supported by years of scientific reading research, it has yet to affect and positively impact students with dyslexia in public schools.

Learning Objectives:

  • ASSESSMENT: Examine issues related to the assessment of dyslexia and how assessment results can inform the selection of academic interventions.
  • ASSESSMENT: Recognize the critical roles of parents and early educators in the recognition of early signs of language learning difficulties in young children and identify potential strategies and approaches to respond.

Disclosure:  Jorene Cook has no relevant financial or nonfinancial relationships to disclose.
