Description

ASSESSING AND DIFFERENTIATING READING & WRITING DISORDERS: A MULTIDIMENSIONAL MODEL provides a framework for differentiating among various types of reading and writing disorders in order to assist the practitioner in establishing a differential diagnosis. This text introduces a multidimensional model that can be used to create profiles of a learner's strengths and weaknesses using 10 skill domains associated with reading and writing. Samples profiles for preschool and school-age children include assessment protocols, diagnostic reports, and treatment plans. A synopsis of relevant literature related to the relationships between spoken and written language, and the best predictors of reading achievement, along with a chapter devoted to counseling and intervention round out the text to provide a complete roadmap for evaluating the weaknesses and strengths in children who have reading and writing difficulties. Professionals who test children for reading and writing disorders and advanced students will find this text an essential tool.
