ESC-20 provides resources, training and technical assistance for evaluators. Quarterly contact group meetings for LSSP’s and Educational Diagnosticians are also provided.

Important Session Information:

The Wechsler Individual Achievement Test–Fourth Edition (WIAT-4: 2020) is a comprehensive achievement test that assesses oral language, reading, writing, and mathematics. The scores can be used in conjunction with information from other sources to identify a student’s eligibility and need for direct specialized instruction. The WIAT-4 offers new subtests including Phonological Awareness, Orthographic Choice, and Orthographic Fluency to help educators and school psychologists Identify subtype of reading disability. This half-day session describes interpretation of data from the WIAT-4 reading and reading-related subtests.

Participants learn how to use WIAT-4 data to identify the nature of a student’s reading difficulties, and the interventions that are indicated based on the student’s scores. As a result of attending this session, participants will:

• Describe the Simple View of Reading and the Direct and Indirect Effects Model of Reading.

• Identify component skills required for reading comprehension.

• Explain types of reading and reading-related disabilities, including dyslexia and dysgraphia.

• Discuss how the WIAT-4 can contribute to screening and identification of students with dyslexia consistent with the TEA Dyslexia Handbook (2018).
