In this episode, Michelle is joined by the multi-talented Susan Lee, MA CCC-SLP, of Anderson, IN. If you’re in the world of early intervention or pediatric home health, then you probably don’t treat patients who have dyslexia on a regular basis…however I bet you have had had patients that you were concerned about! Well, Susan Lee, who was also trained in Orton-Gillingham techniques, is here to decode warning signs for dyslexia in our youngsters! She will share early warning signs, explain at what age a child can participate in a formal evaluation, as well as offer functional advice on what advice to share with a patient’s family when you do see early warning signs.
By the end of this PodCourse, participants will be able to identify and describe:
- 3 early warning signs for dyslexia.
- When and why at that particular age a child can be tested for dyslexia.
- 2 functional explanations to communicate to parents/guardians when a patient does present with early warning signs of dyslexia.
