   Course Summary
A workshop designed for SpLD assessors/ specialist teachers new to writing diagnostic reports or wishing to refresh their skills in transferring statistics into a profile of strengths and weaknesses and begin the process of interpreting the data.
   Course Detail

This practical session has been designed for SpLD assessors/ specialist teachers new to writing diagnostic reports or wishing to refresh their skills in transferring statistics gleaned from the assessment process into a profile of strengths and weaknesses. The half day will look at a range of ways of constructing profiles from the data and how to incorporate confidence intervals. It is well known that the resulting ‘picture’ will vary across individuals but, despite these differences the assessor may identify core features which suggest an SpLD profile. Using theoretical frameworks example profiles will begin the process of interpretation of the emerging patterns of the ‘typical ‘ spiky profile of a dyslexic learner, what you might expect to see for a ‘high achiever’ and what might a ‘flat’ or more complex profile suggest.  

   CPD Themes
  • Reviewing principles of psychometrics, statistics, assessment and underlying theory
  • SpLD testing methods, interpretation, report writing, feedback and test materials
   Audience
  • Assessors
  • Support
   Pre-requisites
  • Delegates are expected to hold a relevant qualification in the diagnostic assessment of SpLD. (Level 7 or equivalent qualification)
   Learning Outcomes
  • • Considered the importance of accuracy when preparing profiles
  • • Explored a range of profile formats appropriate for diagnostic assessment reports including how to incorporate confidence intervals
  • • Reviewed current definitions underpinning the core characteristics of a ‘typical’ spiky dyslexic profile
  • • Considered how this may differ for the ‘high achieving’ dyslexic person
  • • Consider what a ‘flat’ or more complex profile might suggest
  • • Greater confidence in the preparation and initial interpretation of a profile of strengths and weaknesses
