Instrument Selection for the Evaluation of Children with Specific Learning Disabilities

Selecting an instrument is a complex activity that should be based on a number of criteria. The important question is to ask what is the reason for referral and the characteristics of the child and if the instrument chosen is a good fit. That said, no single instrument can address the complexity of most referral questions.

The purpose of this webinar, presented in partnership with the Council for Educational Diagnostic Services (CEDS), is to help participants in selecting instruments and the importance of using multiple sources of data when evaluating children with specific learning disabilities. This webinar will review a case study example of a child with dyslexia that includes the use of multiple sources of data.
