This guide defines dyslexia, followed by an explanation of the PASS Processes (Planning, Attention, Simultaneous, Sequential). The guide then discusses how the pattern of strengths and weaknesses (PSW) method and the discrepancy/consistency method can be used to identify specific learning disabilities. Four types of dyslexia/reading disorders are defined, followed by information on the Feifer Assessment of Reading test. After a case study illustrating the application of the PSW method, the guide concludes with suggestions for phonological instructional strategies and basic reading comprehension strategies.
