CA Dyslexia Guidelines - Next Steps

Now that California’s dyslexia guidelines have been released, what’s next? California legislation (AB 1369, fall 2015) clarified how California educators will handle the reading disability called dyslexia. AB 1369 changed California’s eligibility criteria for Specific Learning Disability (SLD) to include “phonological processing” in the description of basic psychological processes considered. This workshop will discuss how to understand the guidelines, assess for dyslexia, and plan academic interventions for students with phonological processing difficulties.

    Participants will:
  • Learn what is included in California’s definition of dyslexia
  • Considerations and tools for assessing dyslexia
  • Current research and considerations for assessing English language learners for dyslexia
  • How to plan and create academic interventions for students with phonological processing difficulties
