Moderate Disabilities – Initial

Reading Specialist

The focus of this course is the assessment of what students identified with reading and/or writing difficulties understand about the reading and writing processes. This information will then be used as a basis for designing both group and individualized interventions to support these students as they become more proficient readers and writers. Participants will evaluate students with identified literacy difficulties in reading, writing and oral language skills using formal and informal assessment tools, background information and observation. Information gathered will be synthesized and interpreted to select appropriate strategies and plan effective academic programs in the language arts. Participants will work with students who have literacy difficulties to carry out class assignments.

This course includes a pre-practicum field-based experience.
