This presentation will explain the use and interpretation of the WJ IV Dyslexia Profile. The profile includes the essential components of a comprehensive evaluation for dyslexia, including: (a) the primary and secondary reading, spelling, and writing difficulties; (b) the cognitive and linguistic abilities that are possible contributing factors, (c) the ability to learn when reading is not required, and (d) the additional at-risk indicators.
This session will help participants:
1. Explain the use and interpretation of the WJ IV Dyslexia Profile.
2. List the core symptoms and characteristics of dyslexia.
3. Explain the main cognitive, linguistic, and academic factors that are affected by dyslexia.
