RDG 308 Diagnosis and Correction of Learning Differences in Reading

The focus is on the nature and causes of reading difficulties as well as an examination of methods, techniques, and materials used in diagnosing and correcting reading-related difficulties. Attention is focused on the learner and interpretation of physiological, psychological, sociological, emotional, cultural, linguistic and educational factors which influence reading achievement. Provisions are made for identification, analysis, and interpretation of informal and formal measures of reading performance and for the development of instructional strategies employed in the remediation process. Students are introduced to the issues faced by ELLs regarding assessment (i.e. accountability, bias, language proficiency, testing accommodations.)
