Broadcast 44: Free Screening Tool, Mississippi Dyslexia Screener

tori_whaleyAs you may already know, Lexercise has created the free Mississippi Dyslexia Screener to comply with the new Mississippi legislation requiring dyslexia screening for kindergarten and first-grade students in Mississippi (Mississippi Code § 37-173-15).

Our Mississippi Dyslexia Screener is based on research-backed, open-source content and is automated for easy administration, scoring, and reporting. On Wednesday, March 27 at 2 p.m. EST, Tori Whaley, M. Ed. and Clinical Educator with Lexercise, joined us to discuss the new Screener and to demonstrate its easy administration.

Tori is a clinical educator for Lexercise and has been a committed special educator, working as an elementary special education teacher, since 2003. In 2009, Tori completed her M.Ed. in Special Education at the Peabody College of Vanderbilt University, where she focused on educational strategies for students with learning disabilities.  Tori currently works with a non-profit dedicated to improving educational outcomes for young children in the city where she lives.
