Dr. Mather will address the definition of dyslexia;  important lessons from history; the importance of assessing cognitive and linguistic processes, including phonological awareness, orthographic coding, processing speed, and rapid automatized naming; the phases of development of basic reading and spelling skills; and the implementation of differentiated instructional methodologies, including technology, for addressing specific types of reading problems.  

    Participants should expect to increase their:

    1. understanding of the definition and characteristics of dyslexia

    2. knowledge of the cognitive and linguistic factors that contribute to dyslexia

    3. awareness of assessment techniques for diagnosing dyslexia

    4. understanding of reading and spelling development and how instructional methods align with specific developmental levels

    5. knowledge of evidence-based instructional methods to improve phonological awareness, reading decoding, spelling, and reading fluency

    Audience: Parents and educators of K-12 students.
