A Response to the Other Responses

The XP Institute responds to the other responses regarding the identification of SLD.

Donald J. Asbridge, Ed.S.

Bakersfield, California USA

Introduction & Overview

Historical Perspective


100 years ago in our brief history... dyslexia... since then, legal definition in PL 94-142... since then, various identification models have emerged

Current Approaches to SLD Identification


Describe each, provide summary and links

• Discrepancy

• RtI

• PSW/Neurological

• DSM/Psychiatric

• Noncategorical

• New Method by Reading Teachers

• Legislated/Legal

• Advocate/Dyslexia

• CDC: Disease

Brief Discussion (Pros & Cons)

Research

To this day this no actual research proving there is such as thing as SLD

What does NASP say? "More research is needed."

Considerations

57 schools of psychology... everyone has their own view/approach... thus, consumers get a lot of different views. One school kid is ld, go down the street and he's not. INCONSISTENT


WARS exist... one school publishes their paper, the other school responds... shots fired back and forth your kid is caught in the middle


CONSIDERATIONS


1ST RULE: ALWAYS BE SKEPTICAL

2ND RULE: ALWAYS CONSIDER THE NULL HYPOTHESIS


ARTS AND SCIENCES.... LOGIC, HUMANISM,

The NCLD (National Center for Learning Disabilities) has released a document challenging the methods used to identify SLD. It's about time. Unfortunately, the views fall far short of what's needed to resolve the issues.
