We’ve learned how to do a legally defensible dyslexia assessment; but do we know a parent friendly way to present one?  Members of our assessment teams explain results to parents in percentiles, grade equivalents, scaled and standard scores. Parents smile and nod as if they understand, but do they? Participants will learn to distill relevant information from multiple disciplines and weave it into one parent friendly document. Each workshop attendee will be given an electronic copy of the Dyslexia Wrap-Up, which was designed to present academic, speech, and psychological results relevant to reading in a one-page, easy to understand format.
