ESPED 6166 Dyslexia: Neurobiology, Assessment, Intervention Part 2

This course builds on ESPED 6165. Course participants will assess a school-aged student using an extensive self-designed battery of assessments for dyslexia, both informal and norm-referenced. The results will then be summarized in an evaluation report that includes instructional recommendations. Further course topics include double deficit dyslexia, learning in the digital age, multi-tasking, and the assessment of dyslexia for students who are culturally and/or linguistically diverse. Other topics for discussion and research will be co-constructed.
