TED 635 Advanced Diagnosis and Remediation Of Reading Difficulties


3 credit hours

This advanced course provides an in-depth study in the domains addressed in diagnostic assessment and the principles and practices of diagnosis and remediation of reading disabilities and differentiated instruction. In consultation and collaboration with a reading specialist, special education teacher, school psychologist, literacy coach, or related personnel who have the responsibility for providing literacy support, students examine and/or administer and compile a variety of formal and informal diagnostic tools used with individuals with reading difficulties. These must be suitable to their certification levels and endorsements and include the following: interest inventories, English language learning screening tools, visual and auditory discrimination tools, language expression and processing screening, phonemics, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, comprehension, spelling, and writing assessment tools. Students analyze diagnostic profiles of struggling readers and examine various research-based reading intervention programs designed to match varied degrees of reading difficulty. Instructional intensity and programming are addressed. Students are required to complete 30 hours of field experiences in a classroom setting and in collaboration with parents. They are involved in implementing a reading intervention focused on instructional strategies that help students develop learning strategies.
