Wired for Reading Assessment Workshop, August 9-10, 2018, Hamlin Robinson School

August 9th - August 10th, 2018

$150

Taught by Elizabeth Sorby, Ed. S., M.Ed., the Wired For Reading assessment workshop is designed to provide educators with a crash course in how to understand assessment reports as well as training in how to implement the Word-Wires and Wired For Reading criteria assessments.

The course will
• Explain the different types of assessment (formative, summative, and diagnostic) and when you would use each type.
• Explain assessments used to diagnose dyslexia and related learning disabilities.
• Teach how to give and interpret the new Wired for Reading Spelling Inventory
• Demonstrate how to give and interpret the Wired For Reading and Word-Wires criteria assessments
• Explore how these assessments can be used to guide instruction and monitor students’ progress.

Elizabeth is an Educational Specialist who has been working with students with learning differences since 1994. Originally, she trained and worked as a School Psychologist and School Counselor in a large public-school district. After a few years she felt that she needed to learn more about how children learn to read, in order to better meet the needs of the students she worked with. She took her first literacy-focused class from Laura Rogan in Feb. 2001 and became fascinated in the subject of literacy learning and what can make it difficult. For the next few years Elizabeth took every class she could on the subject and began to specialize in children with language-based learning disabilities. Shortly after that first class, Elizabeth went into private practice to do literacy assessments and intervention tutoring. She also spent five years working as an independent school administrator that designed a school wide customized learning program. She is currently back in private practice, doing assessment intervention, and consultations with schools and families about how to assess and support children with learning differences.
In an interactive, hands-on approach, participants will:
• observe and practice teaching individual lessons,
• engage in classroom opportunities for transfer and application
• explore and solve problems of practice.
