What on Earth Is Going On with This Child?! The Evaluation of the Child with Reading Challenges.
How often have you had a student who is receiving appropriate intervention, but there is limited improvement in their educational challenges? During this presentation Dr. Tridas will discuss the process of the diagnostic evaluation of the child with dyslexia and related disorders and review an approach to assess the whole child. During this session, the participants will learn the salient factors in the student’s history, the types of tests that are used to measure these problems and how to evaluate for frequent coexisting conditions. Dr. Tridas will describe an evaluation approach that facilitates the integration of all of the findings into a practical formulation that can help guide the student’s intervention and accommodation plan.
