of the Ohio School Psychologists Association. KAASP is committed to promoting the
professional growth of school psychologists by sharing ideas, methods, and current research

TOPIC: Reading Foundations, Remediation, and the Road Forward with Ohio's New Dyslexia Law

 

TRAINING GOAL:
As school psychologists, we are often sought out for assistance with reading instruction for helping in the design
and implementation of MTSS programs, administering diagnostic reading assessments, and recommending and
implementing reading interventions at multiple tiers of instruction. Ohio continues to focus on improving literacy
achievement and with the passage of House BIll 436 more attention is being focused on helping all students
improve their literacy achievement with effective instruction and evidence based interventions. The goal of this
presentation will be to further enhance attendees' understanding of the science of reading, provide evidence based
assessments and intervention recommendations, and discuss the future of literacy education with the passing of
House Bill 436.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES: As a result of this training, participants will learn:
● How the science of reading informs our current understanding of reading development and remediation
● Suggested assessments and interventions for teachers (RTI or MTSS)
● H.B. 436 (Ohio's new Dyslexia Law) - What we know, what's to come, and how we can begin to prepare
