Dr. Schrank was gladly welcomed back, on September 21st to conduct another interesting workshop on the Woodcock-Johnson IV. The workshop unfolded in two parts; the morning consisted of a review of the cognitive assessment for intervention, linking the theories of cognitive ability with assessment results and implications for instructors. The afternoon workshop focused on the use of the WJIV for the assessment of dyslexia and provided recommendations on which tests to administer to determine the presence and severity of this reading disability. Among the students and professionals who attended the workshop included Summit School’s Louise Deault, Psychologist, and Malcolm Berlyn, Educational Consultant. Between the workshops, TECC provided a delicious lunch to all!
