Webinar: Using Assessment to Design Intervention & Resources

There is no real “one size fits all” for effective intervention for students with learning disabilities and similar difficulties. It can be hard to figure out just how tests can help plan appropriate intervention or select the appropriate resources to address the needs of individual students – but it CAN be done. Dr. Dawn Flanagan shares with LDA of Michigan How to Quickly and Easily Find and Tailor Interventions and Resources for Students with Learning Difficulties Based on Assessment Results.

This event is FREE to LDA of MI members and $20 for non-members. Learn more about membership here.

Learn at your convenience! You will be able to view Dr. Flanagan’s presentation and access handouts from 7 pm on October 26 until 7 pm on October 31.

This learning experience is presented by LDA of Michigan for #LD Month 2020.
