Screening for Dyslexia and Reading Difficulties

Description

In this session, Kelli Cummings, Ph.D., NCSP, Assistant Professor of Special Education at the University of Maryland, College Park/NCIL, Scott Szczerbiak, Director of Special Education and Cortney Dvorak, Supervisor of Instruction/Reading, St. Mary’s County Public Schools will discuss the characteristics of strong reading screening assessments and investigate the pre-literacy and early literacy areas (or behaviors) that are predictive of future reading success. Attendees will hear from St. Mary’s County Public Schools and NCIL about the universal reading screening partnership to identify at-risk readers and students with dyslexia.
