In this free one-hour webinar, leading dyslexia expert Susan Barton will take teachers and parents into the vital topic of progress monitoring for students with dyslexia.
The various reading skills that each of the typical progress monitoring tools check. Which reading skills SHOULD be checked in students with dyslexia (known or suspected) and how to convert test scores into percentiles – to see if real growth is being made.
