Reading disabilities in British Columbia after Moore v. British Columbia (2012)
The purpose of this study was to investigate how a group of special education teachers in British Columbia provide remedial support to students identified as having a reading disability (RD). Considering the Moore v. British Columbia (2012) ruling the location of the support was of interest. To achieve the study’s purpose, the author of the current study set out to determine how a group of special educators offer remediation and what this remediation looks like. A mixed-methods survey was distributed to all attendees of the learning assistance teachers’ association (LATA) conference in Vancouver, BC on October 23, 2016. Twenty-five completed surveys were returned. Results indicate that most respondents prefer to provide pullout remediation, a wide array of strategies were used when providing support, and that the Moore v. British Columbia has made little difference to how special educators provide service. Areas for further research include a deeper analysis of why preferences exist and a broadening of the survey recipients to include educational assistants and administrators.
