Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children is offering a seminar for educators responsible for administering tests and performance measures and/or interpreting assessment results to identify students with dyslexia and recommend instructional intervention. The seminar is "Beyond the Basics," and is specifically designed for those with experience in the dyslexia identification process who would like to review, refine and update their knowledge.

The seminar will highlight:

  • Application of the definition of dyslexia to the identification of dyslexia
  • Case studies of student profiles both with and without dyslexia
  • Case studies of student profiles that go "beyond the basics," including those with complications of ADHD or developmental oral language challenges
  • Case studies that consider intervention decisions based upon the student's response to intervention
  • Case studies submitted by those attending

Many previous participants have found the most valuable aspect of the seminar is the opportunity to submit their own difficult and confusing case profiles and data.

Register by October 18, 2018 in order to receive direction on how your student's profile can be included as a part of the seminar.
