SLD and Dyslexia: Issues in Conceptualization, Identification and Eligibility

Dr. Gail Cheramie and Dr. MiMi Gomez will be providing face-to-face guidance about Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) and the condition of Dyslexia.  This session will focus on the conceptualization of SLD and Dyslexia within a pattern of strength and weaknesses (PSW) model and the identification of SLD with Dyslexia in the Full and Individual Evaluation. The 2-prong requirement for eligibility will be discussed. We will review several cases involving suspected SLD in Basic Reading and/or Reading Fluency with Dyslexia.

Participants will also learn how to synthesize multiple sources of data from a variety of evaluators, including dyslexia specialists.  Evaluators will better understand their contributions to an evaluation as part of an integrated report. Additionally, this presentation will explain the phonological awareness continuum. Participants will better understand how to plan for targeted phonological awareness assessment after reviewing available student data.
