What Does This All Mean?
Using Formal and Informal Reading and Writing Assessments to Determine Programming

Presented by Susan Pensack and Heather Clowers

Heather Clowers, M.A., LDT/C, NCED, OG-T, works as a LDT/C in the Washington Township School District, with students from pre-kindergarten to grade 5. She began her career as a general education teacher. She obtained her Master’s degree and LDT/C certification from Kean University. She is a former president of NJALC and holds the NCED credential.
Reading and writing difficulties in the classroom can often present an educational quagmire. Is the problem developmental, based on a disability, or a combination? Is it dyslexia? This workshop will explore various formal and informal assessments utilized to determine eligibility for services and overall programming. Discussions will be held regarding assorted programs designed to meet the needs of learners in the areas of reading and writing, with a lively give-and-take in how to best tweak daily schedules to meet students’ needs.
