Diagnostic Center North: Dyslexia Assessment

Feifer, CTOPP, and TAPS oh my! What should I to say to a family when they want a dyslexia assessment at school? What is orthographic processing anyways? This training will support educational teams in using their clinical judgment to make specific learning disability (SLD) dyslexia determinations.

Participants will:
  • Learn the components of phonological processing and orthographic processing
  • Explore formal assessment tools to identify the Specific Learning Disability (SLD) dyslexia
  • Learn through case studies how to use their clinical judgment to decide if the student meets the psychoeducational criteria for dyslexia
  • Learn how to talk to families and educational stakeholders about a student with a dyslexic profile
  • A Certificate of Completion is available for virtual training, in-person training, Special Training Events, and Technical Assistance Projects. This may be used to document professional development hours or applied towards the credential requirements for Education Specialist Level II non-university activities.
