House Bill 731 formally recognized dyslexia as a learning disability and mandates that all Idaho schools screen students for this #1 learning difference. Currently, there is no single test that confirms a diagnosis of dyslexia. Rather, a series of reading tests and observations from parents and teachers are considered. In this presentation, Paul will walk attendees through what common assessments traditionally found in Idaho schools can be used to screen and evaluate students for dyslexia.
