Early identification and effective interventions can significantly reduce the severity of a child's reading difficulties!
The Reading Readiness Screening Tool was developed to provide teachers with an accessible, affordable measure to screen students for early reading skills. Recently, the Reading Readiness Screening Tool has been translated (and modified) for application in French at grades 1 and 2. Those teachers who have tried out Outil de diagnostic pour la pre-lecture have found the results to be extremely useful for programming for students who are at-risk for reading difficulties.
Workshop One: Catching Children before They Fail provides the assessment tool, teaches the importance of its subtests, and launches into interventions.
Workshop Two: Assessment Informs Instruction provides interpretation of screening results and additional interventions for each of the subtests.
All assessment materials (Recording Booklet, Stimulus Booklet, and Teacher Manual) are included in the workshop fee.
What Teachers are saying about the English Right to Read workshops.
"I mentioned to my principal a couple days ago that the Reading Readiness Screening Tool is a complete and organized resource that is age appropriate for my class and that I will be using it as a key assessment tool for this upcoming school year and years to come! What I love about the screening tool the most is it doesn't just end after the testing. With the score sheet I am able to determine how the student is developing at a certain point in the school year. I can then use the results and suggestions I learned from the sessions as well as share with parents about how to build on the skills that are needed to become a better reader in a focused area of reading."
"The reading interventionists at my curent site have dicussed RRST results with me for students we are working with. Depending on the performance, on subtests, we then have a better idea of where to begin our intervention program. Some classroom teachers administer RRST themselves, and if they do they add our dialogue as well. This has helped us collaborate to better meet the student's needs. This training and tool are leading to very good results for our students. I have practiced a few subtests, and am understanding my students needs in reading quicker than before, when I tested school using instruments from many developers and sources. "
