Kalie Naidoo is a Clinical Psychologist who is the course leader for the Award in Literacy and Dyslexia.
Merle Croock is an Educational Psychologist and the coordinator for the Bellavista SEEK Assessment Centre.
The concept of dyslexia is not always well understood and as a result individuals are often overlooked or misdiagnosed. Unfortunately, assessment for risk of dyslexia is a complex process with no single test in existence to support identification.
To improve the reliability of assessment this workshop will:
¨ Explain how reading develops
¨ Explore the underlying cognitive processes and skills required for successful reading
¨ Discuss the assessment of these skills and the range of tools available to do so
¨ Examine the interpretation of the results through case studies
Please note: This workshop is aimed at Health Professionals and assumes experience and understanding of the nature of standardised assessment. The administration of tools will not be explored; instead delegates can expect a discussion of the range of tools available.
