Recent Advances in Understanding Word-Level Reading Problems:
Assessment and Highly Effective Intervention
Monday, August 27, 2018
8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. ET (6 CEU Hours)
This workshop will focus on how children learn to read words and why some children struggle. Understanding the nature of word-level reading development and word-level reading problems will guide both assessment and intervention. Studies consistently show that the most commonly used intervention approaches provide limited benefits for weak readers. However, other studies have shown that some approaches can yield very large reading gains for such students, and these will be described and explored.
