WS009: Using Cognitive Neuropsychology to Develop Evidence-Based Reading and Writing Interventions

Wednesday, February 19, 2014 7:30 AM–10:30 AM


This workshop will examine reading and written language disorders from a brain-based educational perspective. The primary learning objectives will be to classify language-based learning disabilities into distinct subtypes based on neural pathways in the brain. A detailed discussion will link each learning disorder's subtype with scores of evidence-based interventions and classroom asccommodations. The use of neuropsychological assessment to survey numerous cognitive processes involved with reading and written language will be featured as the primary means to identify specific language-based learning disabilities in children.
