Professional Development Addressing Assessment and Intervention for Students with Dyslexia in Response to California’s Legislation A.B. 1369

As dyslexia receives more attention in state legislation, schools and teachers need to understand dyslexia. This project is an introductory professional development presentation that begins with an explanation of historical and current research about dyslexia and then turns to assessment and interventions. A suggestion of how to fit interventions inside a multi-tiered level system is provided. Examples of a structured, explicit and multi-sensory lessons are included. Finally, different programs that prescribe to the Orton-Gillingham approach are compared. The purpose of this project was to create a concise and usable professional development for educators and parents regarding California’s new dyslexia legislation, how to screen for dyslexia, and what classroom interventions are considered best practice.
