The Third Grade Reading Law: How do we go from law to practice? Matthew Burns University of Missouri @burnsmk1 States with a Dyslexia Law School Psychologists as Researchers Consumers Synthesizers Conductors (Keith, 2008) Early Warning Signs - Myths Preschool May talk later than most children May have difficulty pronouncing words, i.e., busgetti for spaghetti, mawn lower for lawn mower May be unable to recall the right word
May have trouble interacting with peers May be unable to follow multi-step directions or routines Fine motor skills may develop more slowly than in other children Early Warning Signs - Myths Early Elementary Letter reversals d for b as in, dog for bog Word reversals tip for pit Inversions m and w, u and n Transpositions felt and left Substitutions house and home May transpose number sequences and confuse arithmetic signs (+ - x / =) May be impulsive and prone to accidents May have difficulty planning Often uses an awkward pencil grip (fist, thumb hooked over fingers, etc.) May have trouble learning to tell time May have poor fine motor coordination
Early Warning Signs May be slow to add new vocabulary words May have difficulty with rhyming May have trouble learning the alphabet, numbers, days of the week, colors, shapes, how to spell and write his or her name May have difficulty telling and/or retelling a story in the correct sequence Often has difficulty separating sounds in words and blending sounds to make words Seems to be unable to recognize letters in his/her own name Has difficulty decoding single words (reading single words in isolation) May be slow to learn the connection between letters and sounds A family history of reading and/or spelling difficulties The Federal Regs.
300.307 Specific learning disabilities. the criteria adopted by the State (1) May prohibit the use of a severe discrepancy between intellectual ability and achievement for determining whether a child has a specific learning disability as defined in 300.8; (2) May not require the use of a severe discrepancy between intellectual ability and achievement for determining whether a child has a specific learning disability as defined in 300.8; (3) Must permit the use of a process that determines if the child responds to scientific, research-based intervention as part of the evaluation procedures described in 300.304; and 4) May permit the use of other alternative research-based procedures for determining whether a child has a specific learning disability as defined in 300.8. DSM 5 (APA) Specific Learning Disorder Reading, not dyslexia. a. Difficulty in at least one of the following areas that has persisted for at least 6 months despite the provision of extra help or targeted instruction (a) inaccurate and slow reading, (b) understanding meaning of what is read, (c) spelling, (d) written expression (grammar, punctuation or organization), (e) understanding number concepts, facts, or calculation, and (f) mathematical reasoning. b. The affected academic skills are substantially and quantifiably below those expected for age and
cause impairment in academic, occupational, or everyday activities c. Onset during the school-age years, although may not fully manifest until young adulthood in some individuals d. Intellectual Disabilities, uncorrected auditory or visual acuity problems, other mental or neurological disorders or adverse conditions (psychosocial adversity, lack of proficiency in the language of instruction, inadequate instruction) must be ruled out before a diagnosis of SLD can be confirmed. Third Grade Reading Law Whats Good? (ii) Periodically screens and monitors the progress of each pupils reading skills, at least 3 times per year. (iii) Provides evidence-based core reading instruction. (B) Provides intensive development in the 5 major reading components: phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. (C) Is systematic, explicit, multisensory, and sequential. Term evidence-based appears 10 time!!!!!! Assessment
(a) Approve 3 or more valid and reliable screening, formative, and diagnostic reading assessment systems for selection and use by school districts and public school academies in accordance with the following: (i) Each approved assessment system shall provide a screening assessment, monitoring capabilities for monitoring progress toward a growth target, and a diagnostic assessment. Four Purposes of Assessment Program evaluation: How is the education system working for students overall? MAP Screening: Which of my students are not meeting grade level expectations given Universal Instruction? E.g., STAR, NWEA Diagnostic: What are the specific needs of students who struggle? E.g., measures of specific skills
Monitoring Progress: What does the students growth look like? E.g., CBM (Aimsweb & Dibels) Approved Initial Assessments (DESE) Aimsweb DIBELS EasyCBM FastBridge Degrees of Reading Power Iowa Assessments I-Ready

The PASI is a valuable tool to place students in proper skill groups: Identify mastered and deficit skills in phonological awareness skills Exit student from group and regroup for next skills
Screening Process Screen with PA for kindergarten Screen with decoding for first grade Screen with CBM-R for 2nd 5th Low accuracy (93% 1st 3rd, 95% 4th and 5th) = low decoding Assess NWF or WA for kids who score low Screen with comprehension for MS and HS (use CBM-R or decoding if low) What About Spelling Spelling = decoding Terrible screener Kids with low decoding are poor spellers, BUT Bunch of kids who are poor spellers who decode fine Good diagnostic WTW (already have it then use it) Step 2 Consider Classroom
The hallmark of dyslexia is not poor reading performance It is poor reading performance in the face of effective reading instruction. Most children who struggle to learn to read do not have dyslexia Poor reading performance should signal the need for screening. Procedure Partner Reading 1.

subdivision (a), provide an individual reading improvement plan for the pupil within 30 days after the identification of the reading deficiency. The individual reading improvement plan shall describe the reading intervention services the pupil will receive to remedy the reading deficiency. A school district or public school academy shall provide intensive reading intervention for the pupil in accordance with the individual reading improvement plan until the pupil no longer has a reading deficiency.

Three general outcomes were explored PA tasks such as phoneme manipulation, spelling, and reading tasks such as word reading, pseudoword reading, reading comprehension, oral text reading, reading speed, time to reach a criterion of learning, and miscues National Reading Panel Results PA instruction demonstrated better efficacy over alternative instruction models or no instruction Improved PA measures (strong), reading (d = .53) and spelling skills

(i) That, based on standardized testing, this state has determined that the pupil may be required to be retained in grade 3 as provided under state law The pupil may still be allowed to enroll in grade 4 if he or she demonstrates a grade 3 reading level through performance on an alternative standardized reading assessment or through a pupil portfolio. (ii) That the parent or legal guardian has the right to request a good cause exemption that will allow the pupil to enroll in grade 4 in the next school year.

Specifying the underlying linguistic and cognitive
factors associated with poor reading comprehension skills may be helpful toward developing more effective intervention strategies to assist children (p. 824), especially for those receiving a Tier 3 intervention.
