90 minute live webinar: 12:00 – 1:30 CST, Tuesday, April 26, 2022
CEUs: 1.5 available for attending*
This webinar will examine reading from a brain-based educational perspective, and discuss current literacy trends in the United States. The primary focus of the webinar will be to differentiate “dyslexia” from other reading disorders, as well as to classify developmental reading disorders into four distinct subtypes. There will be a discussion matching each reading disorders’ subtype with scores of evidence-based interventions. The use of a neuropsychological paradigm to discuss multiple facets of the reading process including phonemic proficiency and awareness, phonological processing, orthographic processing, working memory, and executive functioning will be featured. Lastly, the Feifer Assessment of Reading (FAR), a diagnostic educational assessment battery will be introduced. Specific learning objectives include:
- Examine current literacy rates in the United States and the prevalence rate of dyslexia.
- Introduce a brain-based educational model of reading by examining specific neural circuits that underscore phonological development, orthographic development, and reading comprehension skills.
- Discuss four subtypes of reading disabilities, and link scores of evidenced-based interventions and relevant classroom strategies to address each subtype.
- Discuss the differences between a traditional achievement test versus a diagnostic achievement test, and introduce the Feifer Assessment of Reading (FAR) as a more viable means to both diagnose and remediate subtypes of reading disorders.*Note: NASP and APA approved CEUs are not available.
