 October 24 Topics
  • Fall Literacy Screening:  What is a screening and what do the FAST scores mean?  If your child receives intervention or special education services for reading, have you wondered how the FAST scores connect to their goals?  We will share the basics for understanding the reports and what they mean for your child's reading development.
  • Mythbusters:  We will discuss common misunderstandings about the role of the FAST screening and provide tips for talking to your child's teacher(s) about the results.
  • Engaging Your Child in Literacy at Home:  We will share creative and practical ways to involve your child in literacy activities at home.
  • Question/Answer:  We will end with a time for you to ask literacy-specific questions.
