Diagnostic Center North (DCN): CA Dyslexia Guidelines - Next Steps

Now that California’s Dyslexia guidelines have been released, what’s next? California legislation (AB1369, Fall 2015) clarified how California educators will handle the reading disability called dyslexia. This workshop will discuss how to understand the guidelines, assess for dyslexia, and plan academic interventions for students with reading deficits.

Participants Will:

  • What is included in California’s definition of dyslexia.
  • Considerations and tools for screening and assessing dyslexia.
  • Current research and considerations for assessing English Language Learners for dyslexia.
  • How to plan and implement academic interventions for students with reading deficits.
  • A Certificate of Completion is available to participants. This may be used to document professional development hours or applied towards the credential requirements for Education Specialist Level II non-university activities. The Diagnostic Center is also a California Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Board approved continuing professional development provider.
