Assessment for Reading Difficulties and Dyslexia

CORE February 13, 2020
Watch On Demand

Universal screening for reading problems is the best way to identify and address reading difficulties. While there are a range of reading problems that can affect students, an estimated 5-17% of school-age children have dyslexia.* Most students with reading difficulties, including those with dyslexia, can be taught how to be strong readers. But before research-based instruction and intervention can take place, educators must identify which students are struggling and why.

During this hour-long on-demand webinar, Dr. Michelle Hosp, whose research focuses on reading and data-based decision making within MTSS, will provide insights into assessment for reading difficulties. You will learn:

  • How to identify the right assessment for the right purpose
  • How to assess the continuum of reading skills
  • Why assessment and intervention should focus on phonics skills
  • Strategies to link assessment data to instruction

Watch this webinar to deepen your understanding of the role of assessment in supporting students struggling to read.
