Students who struggle to learn to read require explicit, systematic instruction, targeted toward their specific areas of strength and weakness, using an evidence-based methodology. Sheryl Knapp, founder of The Literacy and Learning Assessment Center of CT, will describe the components of a comprehensive literacy evaluation, and their implications for providing each student with effective interventions. She will comment on specific instructional programs and methodologies, including suggestions regarding what to request.
