The Region III CSPD/RESA is hosting a two-part dyslexia virtual training series with presenter Dr. Matthew K. Burns on January 22 and 29, 2021. The topics of sessions are:
Session I – Dyslexia: What is it and how do we screen for it? The first session will discuss the Montana Dyslexia Screening and Intervention Act and how it compares to current research in reading and assessment. The session will discuss the pros and cons of potential screeners and will demonstrate a process to use class wide intervention as the most effective screening tool.
Session II – Dyslexia: What do we do for intervention? The second session will discuss the Montana Dyslexia Screening and Intervention Act and how it compares to current research in reading and instruction. The session will discuss how to determine the specific needs of each student and how to use those data to implement best practices within a multitiered system of support. We will suggest specific research-based interventions for several types of reading difficulties and how to best intensify interventions.
