READ 4328 Diagnostic and Corrective Reading

This course focuses on the formal and informal assessment of struggling readers and the use of that data to base interventions on individual needs. Students utilize prior knowledge of phonological and phonemic awareness, alphabetic principle, literacy development and practice, word analysis, decoding, fluency, and comprehension to plan, implement, and monitor the progress of a struggling reader in a field-based setting. Parent communication and conferencing skills are also addressed. Prerequisite(s): READ 3307, 3320, and 3624 (preferred).
