Research points to clear interventions for kids with dyslexia, but the evaluation process can be hazy. What’s evident is that for various reasons including lower expectations, Black children have fewer intensive resources to address dyslexia. An accurate diagnosis of dyslexia can be a game changer for all students, especially those more likely to be left behind if they fall short. This edWebinar addresses the dyslexia evaluation process and the key principles that impact marginalized students that are under and misdiagnosed.

Viewers learn:

  • Specific barriers to a dyslexia diagnosis
  • The historical perspective of testing and assessment
  • What types of tests are involved in a complete dyslexia evaluation
  • What skills should be measured in a complete dyslexia evaluation

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 teachers.

Terrie NolandAbout the Moderator

Listen. Learn. Teach. It’s that simple. Terrie Noland uses this philosophy as an innovator and a motivator, and it’s evident as she leads, coaches and mentors thousands of K-12 educators about the science of reading each year. She has a unique perspective on the need to unify all stakeholders around a vision for education to smash the reading divide for the millions of struggling readers. Her daily mission is to add value to educators to help influence transformational changes in school districts across the country by addressing the needs of marginalized students. Terrie seeks to share her expertise and passion to encourage and to illuminate a path towards success and measurable outcomes.

If you looked at Terrie’s resume, you would be confused. Her undergraduate and graduate degree work placed her in the field of criminal justice. However, it was through continuous listening and learning that led her on a journey in education starting out in preschool teaching and administration, then becoming a Certified Academic Language Practitioner (CALP) and earning a Ph.D. in literacy and educational leadership from St. John’s University. Terrie is also a John Maxwell certified speaker and coach.

As Vice President of Educator Initiatives at Learning Ally, Terrie works to ignite enthusiasm and excitement by building champion educators and administrators on creating cultures of literacy and learning.
