Session Detail

SLD Identification Tools: Using a Variety of Assessments Tools and Strategies

Presenter: Ed Schultz

According to TEA Guidance Documents (RTI and §89.1040 FAQ): “When conducting an evaluation, schools are encouraged to include criterion-referenced or curriculum-based measures (CBM) to more accurately identify patterns of strengths and weaknesses and link eligibility determinations to instruction. Evaluators must also use professional judgment, including consideration of multiple information or data sources to support the eligibility determination, in making the determination of LD. Information or data sources may include statewide assessment results, formal evaluation test scores (IQ, achievement, cognitive function or processing), RtI progress monitoring data, informal data (rating scales, student work samples, interviews, parent input) and anecdotal reports.”

This virtual workshop session will focus on CBMs for reading (including Dyslexia screeners), math, and writing and the participants will be able to immediately incorporate into their practice.  The session will also use real case studies to process the FIE from referral to decision, including defining characteristics of what SLD is and what it is not, policy implications, and DNQ’s.

Registered participants will receive a Zoom link prior to the workshop.
