Description: Module 5 is the fifth of five modules developed to assist school districts and charter schools in the identification of students with dyslexia. When a student is referred for a dyslexia evaluation, qualitative and quantitative information gathered by the evaluator is used to drive decision making within the legal framework of either the Section 504 or IDEA process. A methodical approach to processing the assessment data, such as the use of a structured written report, will help inform the appropriate committee before it makes any decisions regarding dyslexia identification. At the conclusion of this module, you will (1) know how to analyze and evaluate collected data and then use findings for report writing, (2) be familiar with a framework for documenting evaluation results, and (3) provide hands-on practice in using the framework of a written report to inform a ยง504 or ARD committee.
