Tests of Dyslexia (TOD): Dyslexia Is Complex; Assessing for It Doesn't Have to Be - 32590

Are you drowning in completing a dyslexia evaluation within the FIE? There is often confusion about the exact components of identifying dyslexia in a specific learning disability evaluation. During this session, participants will decipher the key components of the Texas Dyslexia Handbook to increase their awareness of critical components to include for dyslexia evaluations in Texas. Participants will learn how to administer the Tests of Dyslexia (TOD), which is the first comprehensive assessment of dyslexia, eliminating the need to pull tests from different assessments. From a screener to rating scales to a direct assessment to the Dyslexia Interventions and Recommendations Companion Guide, the TOD helps examiners connect data to develop IEPs and targeted intervention plans to address specific skill weaknesses. This session is appropriate for reading specialists, educational diagnosticians, school psychologists, and speech–language pathologists. This session is aligned with the evaluation and dyslexia components of the TEA-required self-assessment.
