Early Identification of Dyslexia

This 3-hour webinar begins by discussing dyslexia definitions, characteristics, and misconceptions, followed by a detailed discussion of phonological and orthographic processing. The focus then shifts to the neuropsychology of dyslexia, followed by assessment strategies, including using a pattern of strengths and weaknesses approach, and examples of relatively new dyslexia-specific measures. This is followed by recommendations for screening and evaluating young children for dyslexia and an introduction to a recently released, norm-referenced screener. Case studies and interventions, especially for orthographic processing are included.
