T13 - Parents Can Accurately and Reliably Use an Online Assessment Tool to Assist in the Evaluation of Dyslexia in Children!

Nov 9, 2017 11:15am ‐ Nov 9, 2017 12:15pm

Standard: $20.00


Parents are often the first to notice that their children are struggling with reading. This session discusses a present study that was conducted to determine if parents have the ability to objectively and accurately administer a dyslexia evaluation tool to their children. To examine this possibility, parents' scores were compared to the scores of trained professionals. The results indicated that parents effectively and reliably used the online dyslexia assessment tool equally as well as trained professionals. This session includes a discussion of the online dyslexia assessment tool along with the results of the study.

Learning Outcome:

  • 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: David Hurford, Autumn Wines, and Samantha P. Nitcher have no relevant financial relationships to disclose.  All funds from the evaluation tool are donated to the nonprofit Center for the Assessment and Remediation of Reading Difficulties. No relevant financial relationship exists.
