9780966135329: Dyslexia Testing: A Process, Not a Score

Dyslexia is a oft-misunderstood learning disability, primarily because it can affect processing of sounds and letters with many different manifestations. The label "dyslexia" is not important, but it is important to understand the wide variety of elements that can interfere with efficiency in reading, spelling, and writing. Dyslexia Testing provides a clear, systematic approach to understanding this learning disability. The booklet defines dyslexia and its related processing components, along with the value of identifying a child's processing strengths and weaknesses in reading and writing. The diagnostic process for dyslexia is described with simple, complete explanations. Also useful to help teachers determine when to refer for testing.

From the Author:

Dyslexia Testing: A Process, Not a Score is a revision of a previous publication. This second edition expands the descriptions to make it useful for the general education teacher who is trying to determine when to refer a child for further testing. It also provides sufficient guidelines for the diagnostician. The "how to" section is expanded and a new section describes the components of a written evaluation report. My goal was to develop a volume that would be easy for a variety of people (evaluators, teachers, parents) to use and understand, with the overall goal of helping more children be successful in developing reading, spelling, and writing skills.
