Dear School Psychologist: Your Role in the Massachusetts Dyslexia Guidelines

This session is from the NASP 2022 Annual Convention

  • PMD: 3,10
  • Skill Level: Introduction

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. identify the key components of the new Massachusetts Dyslexia Guidelines;
  2. review their school or district's policies and programs relative to the new Guidelines
  3. work collaboratively with school personnel and families in preventing and responding to reading disorders.


School psychologists will be key members of the school teams designated to implement new policies and practices in the early identification and targeted instruction of students at risk for dyslexia. Learn what the new guidelines do and don't ask schools to do. Identify next steps for implementing the guidelines in your school and improving reading outcomes for all students. This workshop is designed for school psychologists working at all grade levels in Massachusetts.
