Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. identify the characteristics and subtypes of dyslexia.
  2. recognize the neurological correlates of dyslexia.
  3. select appropriate assessment measures for dyslexia.


With the growing demands for dyslexia testing, school psychologists have a new area of assessment to master. This workshop begins by discussing dyslexia definitions, characteristics, and legislation, followed by identification of the neurological correlates. The focus then shifts to assessment strategies and examples of relatively new dyslexia-specific measures. Case studies will be used to illustrate how to analyze and interpret results. The workshop concludes with intervention recommendations specifically for dyslexia.
