Modifying Tests for Your Struggling Readers
by Leanne Foth, M.A., LDT-C
This month, we have a guest writer for our Tips column. Leanne Foth, learning consultant in the Denville Township school district, has shared her suggestions for modifying tests for students with dyslexia and other disabilities. I have put her recommendations into practice and found them to be useful and effective for my students. Give them a try. Sue Schwartz
