Why Is the School Psychologist Involved in the Evaluation of Struggling Readers?
Kibby, Michael W.
Journal of Educational & Psychological Consultation, v19 n3 p248-258 2009
This article addresses the role of the school psychologist in the evaluation of children experiencing significant difficulties in reading. The author addresses first the topics of what a reading diagnosis is and what should be expected as the result of the diagnostic evaluation of a child for whom reading has been a difficult task. Before describing the goals, details, and outcomes of a reading diagnosis, a brief argument of why diagnosis is important is presented, followed by the rationale for the term "reading re-mediation."
