ESC Region 13 - Main Campus
6.00 CPE Credits  

This session will assist Evaluators and Multidisciplinary Evaluation Teams in understanding the dyslexia referral and identification process. Discussions will include the elements of reading, defining dyslexia, and the process for the evaluation for dyslexia in Texas under the Texas Dyslexia Handbook and IDEA. It will include information about the data gathering process that would suggest a need to consider evaluating for dyslexia, and a comprehensive review of domains to assess for dyslexia, including achievement, cognitive processes, and other related areas. Participants will learn how to incorporate these elements into a special education full individual evaluation and how to differentiate between dyslexia and other specific learning disabilities in reading.
