Webinar Purpose: The webinar is geared toward school-based speech-language pathologists (SLPs) who want to know more about assessment and progress monitoring for language-learning disorders like dyslexia.

Curriculum-based measures for progress monitoring and instructional decision making will also be reviewed. Resources and references for continued learning on this subject will be shared and discussed.
